Professional wrestler and entertainment impresario Chris Jericho has announced his plan to be cryogenically frozen and subsequently thawed in time to return as Y3J.
Jericho will soon be immersed in a vat of liquid nitrogen, flash-freezing him into a state of suspended animation, he revealed on his “Talk is Jericho” podcast.
“The future will never, eeeeevvvver, be the same again,” he said.
Jericho will then spend the next 986 years in this icy hibernation, to be thawed only after World Wrestling Entertainment has begun airing a series of video vignettes teasing the impending debut of Y3J in the year 3000.
It is unclear what the professional wrestling landscape will be like at the beginning of the next millennium, but most experts believe it will be controlled by the great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandson of Vince McMahon, and will probably involve jetpacks.
Jericho, who is known for his big personality and even bigger ego, expects he’ll be WWE Champion of the Universe within a few weeks of thawing. There is a slight chance, of course, that his lower extremities will fall off.
Jericho also revealed this week that he invented cryogenics.
