Wrestling icon visits city

Wrestling legend Chris Jericho swung through Penticton over the weekend to attend a wedding. 

Best known for his years with World Wrestling Entertainment, Jericho posted to his Instagram account from the Peach City multiple times over the weekend.

He was in Penticton for his cousin’s wedding, says his Instagram posts, and was surprising locals during his visit. 

The Winnipeg native is one of the most decorated professional wrestlers of all time and commands a massive following with nearly 11 million combined fans on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. He initially debuted in 1990 and is still active in the ring today.

As unlikely as this may sound, I rode a school bus with Chris Jericho in Penticton yesterday. #true @IAmJericho
