Jericho on week three of Dancing with the Stars

Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke scored a 21, which put them in a three-way tie for fifth place on the show, or actually beating only three people.

Everyone was supposed to use someone they knew as inspiration and Jericho used his mother, who passed away several years ago but had been wheelchair bound as noted in his books since 1990 when he started his wrestling career.

Because he was dedicating the dance to his mother, he asked to be introduced as Chris Irvine instead of Chris Jericho, the first time he's gone by his real name professionally.
