• Chris Jericho Announces Ralphus’ Death

During his Saturday Night Special last night, Chris Jericho announced that his kayfabe WCW security guard, Ralphus, passed away last year.

Below is what Jericho said:

“I just found out he passed away like last year. God bless John Riker, that was his real name.”

In 2018, Jericho tried to get him on his podcast, but that didn’t happen:

“I sent him an email, ‘Hey Ralphus, it’s me, Jericho. How are you? Would you like to do my podcast and reconnect?’ He emailed me back and said, ‘Is this the real Chris Jericho?’ I said, ‘Yeah man, this is my number, give me a text or give me call.’

Never heard back from him again. I got big leagued by Ralphus.”

RIP Ralphus
