FOZZY singer and former WWE wrestling superstar Chris Jericho is having a big estate sale at his old home in Odessa, Florida this weekend.
"We're selling everything," Jericho said in a Facebook video posted Thursday. "All the books, all the magazines, all the records, all the Chris Jericho 8x10s, hockey cards, you name it. It's just piles and piles and piles, oodles and oodles and oodles of stuff."
Proceeds go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Tampa chapter, he added.
Chris, whose real name is Christopher Keith Irvine, and his wife Jessica bought their four-bedroom lakefront home in 2004 for $970,000, public records show.
This past February, it was reported by the Tampa Bay Times that Jericho had purchased a new gated lakefront estate in Odessa, Florida for $3.255 million. The 8,569-square-foot house has five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, a six-car garage and tennis court. Amenities include wine storage for 500 bottles.
Acclaimed actor, wrestler, musician, author, podcaster, game show host and television personality, Jericho has established himself as a multi-faceted performer with millions of fans worldwide. Jericho is one of the most popular performers in the history of World Wrestling Entertainment. In 2001 he was crowned the WWE Undisputed Champion and in 2017 become the first ever "Double Grand Slam" champion in WWE history. He has been named one of the top five most charismatic performers of all-time by WWE.com. In January 2019, he officially signed with All Elite Wrestling — a brand new pro wrestling company started by the owners of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, Tony and Shahid Khan.
Jericho hosts the hugely popular "Talk Is Jericho" podcast on Westwood One, that has amassed over 220 million downloads. Topics are diverse and past guests include Dennis Miller, Larry King, William Shatner, Steve Austin, DMC, Paul Stanley, Lars Ulrich, Kiefer Sutherland, Maria Menounos, Mike Tyson, Cheech Marin and Slash.

Jericho is also a four-time New York Times bestselling author with his autobiographies 2007's "A Lion's Tale: Around The World In Spandex", 2011's "Undisputed: How To Become The World Champion In 1,372 Easy Steps" and 2014's "The Best In The World: At What I Have No Idea" and "No Is A Four Letter Word" all displaying his witty, self-deprecating writing style.
