Season 8 Episode 7 of the singing reality show, The Masked Singer, that just concluded had a surprise waiting for wrestling fans. The singer inside a costume who won the show is widely believed to be former WWE and current AEW star, Chris Jericho.
The Masked Singer is a reality show where celebrities dressed in funny costumes have to compete with each other in a singing contest. They are covered in costumes from head to toe. The judges guess their identities while the audience votes them out based on their performances. The voted-out contestants have to unmask right away, while the winner goes to the next round without unmasking.
While singing, a particular contestant dressed as a pink female dragon bride caught the attention of the wrestling universe. Fans believe that it was none other than AEW talent and current ROH World Champion Chris Jericho. The fans have heard him sing earlier as he is the lead vocalist of his heavy metal band Fozzy. In fact, he has sung his AEW theme song, Judas, himself.
While dressed as The Bride, he performed on Walk the Moon’s 2014 hit, Shut Up and Dance With Me.
