Video: Former WWE star Chris Jericho on 'Dancing with the Stars' Episode 5

Chris Jericho was forced to sweat a bit, but he ultimately survived the latest cut on "Dancing with the Stars."

Despite he and partner Cheryl Burke getting their best score yet from the judges on Monday night, they were the last couple to be told they were safe from elimination on Tuesday's results show.

Jericho and Burke, who were in a three-way tie for the second-highest score of the night with a 26 (two nine's and an eight) for their Viennese Waltz performance, are one of seven remaining couples.

Model Petra Nemcova was sent home.

Here's an idea to make the show more interesting: Each week, have the two celebrities who are in jeopardy cut promos on each other like the competitors on Tough Enough did Monday night.

Jericho would win the DWTS title for sure. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward may think he's a good trash talker, but he's just another gelatinous parasite compared to the oratory skills of Jericho.

Man, we gotta vote for him, it would be lame if he lost because of a bunch of Kendra, Romeo, Karate Kid fanatics, etc. Jericho should have a better following than most of them I would think.

I know RAW is Monday, but it might not hurt to post a reminder that people can vote Monday night. Even I'll confess to rooting for him, but being too lazy to vote.

I don't think i have ever laughed so hard in my life as when Jericho got that 8 from Len, look at his reaction. He literally jumps up and down on the spot!! Brilliant!!!


Eck, you are probably right on the cutting a promo bit, Hines Ward would get owned by Jericho. However with all the dancers virtually equal right now, it is turning into whoever is more popular avoids elimination and clearly Ward owns Jericho, as he has been near the bottom.....See you Dirtbag Ravens in September....Yeah Flacco is really going to get it done for you, OK!

The choice of song and outfit made slightly ironic by the fact he's Canadian...

We don't watch wrestling, but we love watching Chris dance--even picked up the phone to vote for him.

Then why were you on this website Dahlink?!?!

Bryan, is this site restricted to wrestling fans? I'm a Jericho fan and the subject was dancing, which is my thing.
