– Chris Jericho’s second autobiography will be titled Highlight of the Night. No word yet on when it comes out in the United States but it will be released on September 16th, 2010 in Canada and February 17th, 2011 in the UK. Here’s the synopsis for the book:

“A Lion’s Tale documented Chris Jericho’s journey from small-time dreamer to big-time superstar, from Winnipeg, Canada, to undisputed WWE heavyweight champion of the world. Having achieved his wildest dreams in A Lion’s Tale, Chris Jericho’s sequel kicks off just as the fantasy begins to unravel. Faced with endless internal politics on his rise to the top of the WWE company ladder, Jericho has to draw on the super-human resources that got him there in the first place. There are bruising encounters aplenty both inside and outside the ring. He reveals why he temporarily left WWE, includes the inside story of his time in Hollywood, and opens the can of worms that is life on the road with Fozzy. He also re-visits the premature birth of his twins and the pain of his mother’s death, as well as the shock of Eddy Guerrero’s and the Benoit family deaths. As upfront and outspoken as A Lion’s Tale, the sequel is outspoken and direct as the man himself.”
