Chris Jericho: Your Role Model - WCW Thunder [3/5/1998]
It’s kinda hard to pinpoint this exact date of this photo but based on some clues given in Jericho’s book and his gimmick around this time, I’m going with this one. This would have to have taken place at the very beginning of his big push, right after he beat Juventud Guerrera for his mask at SuperBrawl VIII. The weird thing is that Jericho started to wear this vest on Thunder for a couple of weeks, but the camera guys never actually zoomed in on the back!
Regardless, it’s still a pretty awesome piece of attire that never really seemed to take off. On the otherhand, the WCW Monday Jericho shirt that he started to sport around this time as well managed to stick with the character as several variants of that even showed up whenever he jumped ship over to the WWF.
