• WWF Legend Says His Old Nickname Doesn’t Exist Within Him Anymore
A fan on Twitter recently asked WWF Legend Chris Jericho about his former WWF/E nickname ‘Y2J’ and why such a chant would offend him these days.
Here’s what the fan tweeted:
“Hey @IAmJericho. Serious question. Why’d you get so upset when the fans chanted ‘Y2J’ at you? Aren’t they just chanting your nickname back at you?”
Jericho replied by tweeting the following:
“It’s a nickname & and a character from 15 years ago from another time, another place and another mindset. He doesn’t exist within me anymore.”

• 2-Time WWE Hall Of Famer Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran X-Pac (Real name: Sean Waltman) celebrates his 49th birthday today.
Waltman originally started to do televised jobs on WWF TV in 1993, using ring names like “The Kamikaze Kid”, “The Cannonball Kid” or just simply “The Kid”, before getting an upset win over Razor Ramon on May 17, 1993, which resulted in him becoming “The 1-2-3 Kid”.
In September 1996, he jumped ship to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, where he became known as new nWo member “Syxx”, but eventually returned to the World Wrestling Federation the night after WrestleMania XIV.
Now known as X-Pac, Waltman was brought back to replace Shawn Michaels in D-Generation X, with Triple H taking over as the leader of the faction.
X-Pac stayed with the company till August 2002 and later wrestled for Total Nonstop Action! (now known as iMPACT Wrestling) in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006 & 2010.
In 2019, Sean was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, alongside other D-Generation X members Triple H, Chyna (†) & The New Age Outlaws.
Then in 2021, he was actually inducted a second time, as a member of the New World Order.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY 1-2-3 KID!
