Antique Pro Wrestler Chris Jericho Challenges Carrie Underwood to $10,000 Hockey Bet

Antique WWE pro wrestler Chris Jericho, who has been dancing around in spandex since Y2K was a thing, donned his heel persona on April 27, challenging Carrie Underwood to a $10,000 bet on the outcome of the NHL playoff series that’s pitting the Nashville Predators vs. the Winnipeg Jets.

Jericho, a Jets superfan, initially made the challenge on the Mackling & Megarry radio show, per Global News, and followed it up with Instagram and Twitter posts.

“If you’re going to be touting the Nashville Predators, you have no idea what you’re getting yourself into,” said Jericho on the show. “This is Winnipeg. We are Winnipeg.”

Jericho also mentioned that Carrie’s husband, Mike Fisher, was a “fourth line bench warmer” for the Preds.

All right @carrieunderwood…what should we wager? @nhljets @predsnhl #GoJetsGo #Y2Jets

Jericho’s father, Ted Irvine, is a Winnipeg native and played more than 700 games in the NHL. Jericho said he would donate his winnings to JDRF in support of diabetes research.

Currently, the Preds and Jets are tied 1-1 in the series.

There has been no response from Carrie’s camp regarding the bet—and don’t hold your breath for one.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
