From Publishers Weekly

An entertaining follow-up to their popular book A Lion's Tale, international wresting superstar Jericho and co-writer Fornatale continue their chronicle of Jericho's wild ride through the wacky world of professional wrestling. This book picks up where the earlier book ended—with Jericho in 1999 joining Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Enterprise, the most important venue in wresting—and ends with Jericho's return to the ring in 2007 after a two-year retirement. Jericho hilariously details these key years as WWE's resident bad guy. His feuds with WWE's colorful (and colorfully profane) cast, including the likes of X-Pac, Ken Shamrock, Chyna, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, and Christian, are solidly recounted, although most of this will be old news to hardcore WWE fans. But the most interesting stories involve his battles on- and off-stage with such better-known stars as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Goldberg—whom Jericho once had run over by a limousine during an episode of WWE's Raw series. It is here that Jericho shines and proves once again that, next to Mick Foley, he is an insightful and funny observer of pro wrestling's absurd universe. (Feb.)

Review

'Simply put, you MUST own this book... If his acclaimed bestseller "A Lions Tale" set a standard for wrestling tomes, his long-awaited follow-up "Undisputed" has raised the bar again Jericho is now the proud scribe of two out of the top three wrestling books of all time.' DAILY STAR 'If Jericho had never made it as a wrestler or a rock star he could have easily found a suitable career as a writer. His style of writing anc consistent wityy sense of humour makes the book very addictive... Just like the first book, this sequel belongs on the bookshelf of any wrestling fan past or present.' THE WRESTLING PRESS --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

After reading Jericho's first book, I was so thrilled to read "Undisputed" to see what insight and wit we would get from Y2J. I got the book just a few days ago and I couldn't be more pleased with the material in the book. It was such an easy read. I found myself blowing through the chapters. His insight into his WWE debut, bumpy road in 1999, relationship with Vince McMahon, and many colorful insights to other wrestlers, makes this book one of the greatest wrestling books I have ever read. Right up there with "Hitman" by Bret Hart and "Have a Nice Day" by Mick Foley. Chris Jericho has had a legendary career and it's only fitting that he has two legendary books (and a great DVD now) to go along with it. I recommend this book to anyone who loves wrestling, the WWE, Chris Jericho, reading, or all of the above. I sense he might think about a third book. When and if he does, I will be ready to read what the "Savior of the WWE" has to say again.

It was fitting that Mick Foley wrote the foreword to Chris Jericho's memoir, UNDISPUTED, and passed the torch to Jericho as the new champion of wrestling books. Jericho uses the formula that made Foley's books so successful, creating a personal connection with his readers with his openness and wit, and in the process does it even better than the long-reigning king of wrestling authors.

Unlike his autobiography A LION'S TALE, Jericho's new book UNDISPUTED is a memoir, chronicling his journey through WWE as he becomes one of the biggest stars in the wrestling business while he battles to be taken seriously as a musician and actor. The book is an intriguing look inside all three forms of entertainment and shows how his success in one venue often serves as a hindrance in the others. His metal band, Fozzy, struggles to break away from its reputation of a gimmick act and becomes a legitimate band that headlines sold-out events in some places and flops in others. HIs acting career seems doomed before it starts, as the black cloud of wrestling superstardom lurks over his head while he tries to catch a break as a "real" actor.

UNDISPUTED is entertaining cover-to-cover and, although I expected to skim over his adventures in music and Hollywood, those tales prove to be every bit as captivating as the wrestling. But there is plenty of wrestling in UNDISPUTED, offering readers an peek behind the curtain from his highly anticipated and disappointing start in WWE to his reign as the first-ever Undisputed Heavyweight Champion then back into mid-card purgatory. He details the political forces that worked against him, his backstage fight with the feared Goldberg, the heartbreaking loss of his close friend Eddie Guerrero, and the senseless Benoit family tragedy.

Chris Jericho's second book is a good read. I remember much of what Jericho writes about when it comes to his wrestling career. The inside look on what all happened is indeed an interesting sight. It seemed like the timeline of the book jumped around a bit more than the first book, and there was a lot more on his musical career in this one, too. If you're wanting to continue along Jericho's journey since the end of his first book, and his first run in the WWE, then this is your book.

Chris Jericho has written another classic book. This may be better than his first book as here we see him branching out a bit into the world of music and his own home life. Jericho is honest in his writings on his failings, his start in music, how he had to swallow his pride to be a rock and roll star and his arrest on a DUI.

The most important chapters relate to his mother and to Chris Benoit, both very emotional for Chris and the reader.

Lots of humour throughout the book without that feeling of trying too hard to be funny.

Very entertaining and one of the best books written by a wrestler out there.

What a gripping autobiography! It kept me turning the pages (figuratively speaking, since I own a Kindle) well into the night. Thanks to the many hats that Chris Jericho wears (wrestler, singer, actor), he has a lot of fascinating tales to tell. I wonder how he finds the time and energy to do so competently everything that is on his plate, but reading about it makes me just want to push myself that much harder in my own endeavors. This book was well worth the money I paid for it. Give it a shot; you won't be sorry.

In Chris Jericho's second book, he covers the time-line of his life after entering the WWE. He talks a lot about the hardships he encountered when realizing that WCW operated a lot less structured than WWE. I found the book to be very humorous, as was the first, with his metal references throughout and side bars indicating that Mick Foley has never beaten him.
While most people will buy this with his wrestling career in mind, the book also serves as a reminder of how harsh the music industry is, as Chris covers his time in Fozzy from playing to empty clubs to playing huge festivals. There is a also a really cool story about Axl Rose randomly appearing and hanging with Jericho and crew one night that was very interesting.

Something I like about Chris' writing is he's not afraid to call things as they happened, and isn't afraid of crushing egg shells with people, and isn't worried about painting a pretty picture of everyone to keep a job. I appreciated his honesty in describing moments with McMahon that had favorable and unfavorable outcomes.

One of things I did pick up is the book has a tone to it when describing Chris Benoit, which he has a whole chapter dedicated to, Chris acknowledges the incident, but at the same time wants to remind the readers of all his friend accomplished, and not let Benoit's entire life be summed up by the murder/suicide. It's a great reminder that aside from the end, Benoit did have a lot of heart for wrestling.

Great book, I recommend it for anyone who's a wrestling or metal fan
