Why Professional Wrestler Chris Jericho Got Involved In Terrifier 2 [Exclusive]

It’s no secret that All Elite Wrestling superstar Chris Jericho has his hands full in the world of entertainment. As the Jericho Appreciation Society members around the world know, he keeps busy with his band Fozzy and sporadic appearances in films and television on top of his wrestling commitments. But after the current Ring of Honor World Champion hesitantly put on “Terrifier” after a recommendation from his guitarist, the Painmaker was hooked. Jericho recalled:

“I was kind of just like, ‘I don’t know if I like the title, and it’s a clown.’ He goes, ‘You got to watch this scene.’ He showed the famous scene, Catherine [Corcoran]’s scene. And I was like, ‘That’s the f**king most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen.’ I watched it, and just loved it right away. [Then] David and I did a convention together. One of the reasons why I did the convention was like, ‘Oh, I got to talk to the clown.’

So when there was talk about ‘Terrifier 2,’ I was like, ‘I f**king want to be in this.’ And I think we spoke about a lot of different things and [they] connected with my manager to talk about some dealings and stuff. And I just became kind of a real champion for the movie. […] That’s kind of where it started, and then Damien had a couple ideas and then came up with this really cool scene [for me] towards the end of the movie.”
