That was totally Chris Jericho on The Masked Singer, right?

I don’t watch The Hidden Singer myself (only because the time I have for matches between outrageously dressed celebrities and/or attractive people has already been taken up by pro-wrestling and Drag Race), but I understand the basic concept.

Celebrities wear what appear to be mascot costumes designed by someone who tripped over balls. They then sing covers so a panel of judges and the audience can try to guess who they are.

Why are we talking about it on a pro wrestling blog? Well, the headline has already given up, but listen to “The Bride” – who in addition to wearing a wedding dress, is also a giant pink dinosaur – perform Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” in episode 7 from season 8 and You tell me why we’re talking about it on a pro wrestling blog…

If you quickly thought, “BAI GAWD! That’s Ring of Honor world champion and Fozzy lead singer Chris Jericho!” … welcome to the club. That’s what almost every wrestling fan who’s seen that video is thinking, along with a bunch of people familiar with Jericho’s voice from his litany of other pop culture endeavors. It’s a theory that’s also supported by the narration for his introductory video package on the episode, titled “Hall of Fame Night”:

“Dear beloved, we are gathered here today for a hall of fame night that I promise to rock. I always tell feel good stories, but let me explain how I got here, alone, in this junk marriage. I have a rough personality. I live on the road, selling out arenas. And I have an appetite for destroying things. So I’m famous for being in some of the messiest fights. I have gone the solo route. But I’ve come here to master a new engagement with all you Masked Singer freaks. So tonight, here comes the bride.”

I have also seen some speculate that he is some Jericho nemesis of Sebastian Bach, and even a few argue that The Bride is someone trying to sound like the Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla. But this performance of Smashmouth’s “All Star” pretty much seals the deal for me.

The (Pink Dino) Bride won that battle, forcing Gopher to unbag (revealing Parliament Funkadelic George Clinton’s legendary multi-hyphenate) and leave the show. It also meant a new clue regarding the identity of The Bride, which suits a guy who used to come out in a song called “King of My World”:

The Bride progress as they try to earn a place in the semi-finals. If they do, it could take some time before we get confirmation of who they are. If they don’t, we’ll find out sooner.

But it’s totally Jericho, right?
