FOZZY frontman and WWE wrestling superstar Chris Jericho and his dancing partner Cheryl Burke performed a paso doble during last night’s (Monday, April 11) episode of “Dancing With The Stars”. Chris, who was dressed in a vest made from a pleather couch, later stated that Cheryl had taken him from “Charlie Brown to Charlie Sheen” this week as far as dance attitude goes.

In an interview with KABC, an ABC affiliate in Los Angeles, Jericho stated about his appearance in “Dancing With The Stars”, “Every performance I do is going to be like a Vegas show. I’m going to make sure that people have a great time. And if my technical abilities aren’t great, it doesn’t matter; you have to connect with the people that are watching. And that’s what I’m hoping to do with every performance I do in a different way.”
A six-time WWE world champion, two-time New York Times best-selling author, lead singer of the rock band FOZZY and host of the ABC game show “Downfall”, Chris Jericho began wrestling at age 19 and is one of the most popular performers in wrestling history.
