Breaking The Code: Behind the Walls of Chris Jericho Lineup

For years upon years Y2J fans have been clamoring for a DVD for their favorite superstar. We had to endure 3 different Cena DVD's and even a John Morrison DVD. However, in 2010 our long wait ended as the WWE announced that they would finally release a DVD for one of the greatest superstars in the history of the company. A couple of days ago , the man himself, Chris Jericho, linked to the actual content (below) of the DVD on his twitter page. While it has been a long wait for Jericho's DVD, but it might almost (not quite but almost) be worth it looking at the lineup below.

The first disc consists of a documentary about Jericho's career, and I couldn't be more excited. The WWE has done a wonderful job with the documentaries (The best example is The Rise and Fall of ECW) they put on these DVD's. In addition to the documentary, the WWE has also decided to gather some of Jericho's promos and put them on the disc as well. Jericho has cut so many marvelous promos over the years, and I applaud the WWE's decision to gather them and put them in one place. Last but not least, we come to the actual matches on the 3 disc set. And this is where the WWE owning the largest wrestling library in history comes in real handy. Not only are they putting the recent classics (ie Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho 2008) that Jericho has been involved in, but they are also including the long forgotten gems and matches that just didn't get much viewership in the past (Jericho vs Ultimo Dragon). I don't have anything bad to say about the collection, but I do regret the fact that none of the Jericho vs Benoit matches are included in this disc. I understand why they didn't do it, but these two had some incredible matches and that deserves some recognition.

Disc 1

Throughout his remarkable career he has provided sports entertainment fans with amazing matches and astounding moments whether he was in Smokey Mountain Wrestling, ECW, WCW, and WWE. He’s also left his mark on the entertainment industry outside the ring, from his band Fozzy to writing a NY Times bestselling autobiography. This 3-disc set includes a never-before-seen documentary on the life and times of Jericho featuring new candid interviews with Jericho and his rivals, as well as more than a dozen of his greatest matches.
