Jericho On Dancing w/ Stars Recap, Stacy Keibler Interview
— Thanks to John Carr for this report: Chris Jericho danced again tonight on Dancing with the Stars. The theme of the evening was personal stories. The stars could choose a song that meant something to them. Chris chose The Beatles’ “Let It Be”. In the pre-taped piece, he told the story of his mother’s accident as he finished wrestling school that confined her to a wheelchair until her death in 2005. He prepared to give up wrestling but she insisted he continue to pursue his dream. He then said his real name is Chris Irvine and for the first time in 20 years in his professional life he would be performing as himself and not a character. The announcer introduced him for the dance as Chris Irvine. He danced a rumba with his partner Cheryl Burke and received a score of 21. The judges commented on some of the lack of technical skill but complimented the emotional connection and Chris moved one of the judges to tears.
