After Chris Jericho’s shocking revelation Monday that CM Punk’s father is an alcoholic, Punk retaliated with the accusation that Jericho’s father is a Jerichoholic.
“Chris, I know for a fact that your father, Ted Irvine, is a raging Jerichoholic,” Punk said. “Being addicted to Jerichohol is a far more pathetic vice than being addicted to alcohol.”
Known for his “straight-edge” lifestyle, Punk abstains from all drugs and alcohol — and “especially Jerichohol,” he said.
“Sure, my father has struggled with a drinking problem,” Punk added. “But at least he has never been a Jerichoholic. That would be a true disgrace to the Punk family.”
Ted Irvine is reportedly ashamed of his son’s verbal attacks, and has recently re-entered Jerichoholics Anonymous.
