Sunday Smackdown

Bookworms, are you ready to rumble? World Wrestling Enterprise legend Chris Jericho will soon be pile-driving into town to smack down his latest hardcover on yo’ ass.

Jericho – an actor, wrestler, and musician who, in recent years, has added "author" to his beefy resume – will be flexing his brain muscles, posing for some spandex snapshots, and signing autographs at Changing Hands Bookstore. His Undisputed: How To Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps chronicles the muscleman from Manitoba’s journey through the weird and wacky WWE, which should prove entertaining for those unacquainted with an industry that has become a mainstay of pop culture and has blessed us with the likes of Hillbilly Jim and Brutus Beefcake. Jericho’s insight comes as a welcome reprieve and adds a much-needed dose of intellect to an oft-derided sport.
