5 records that Chris Jericho holds in WWE
Will Y2J set more records in the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble?
Chris Jericho will compete in his first WWE match in nine months when he takes part in the Greatest Royal Rumble event on Friday.
The 47-year-old, whose last match was outside of a WWE ring against Kenny Omega in NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 show in January, will be one of 50 entrants in the largest Royal Rumble of all time in Saudi Arabia.
To celebrate Y2J’s in-ring WWE return, let’s take a look at five records that he holds with the company.
#5 Most eliminations in Elimination Chamber history
Earlier in 2018, Braun Strowman eliminated five men to set a new record for the most number of eliminations in a single Elimination Chamber match.
However, he’s still five away from equalling the all-time record of 10 cumulative eliminations inside the steel structure, which was set by Chris Jericho in 2012.
The future Hall of Famer has competed in eight Elimination Chamber matches (another all-time record), eliminating Booker T, Kane, Kevin Nash, Edge, JBL, Umaga, Mike Knox, The Undertaker, Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston along the way.
