Chris Jericho has tough competition on Dancing with the Stars but the stars of WWE are in his corner as they watch him dance each week.

WWE Superstar Chris Jericho has what it takes to win Dancing with the Stars‘ mirror ball trophy according to the stars of WWE! WWE Diva Natalya told HollywoodLife.com that she can’t wait for him to win and have her own dance lesson with the star.

“He is nailing it, he is amazing. I think he is going to win it,” she told us at Wrestlemania in Atlanta. “I can’t wait to see him win it and then come back to the WWE and teach me how to dance!”

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels believes Chris’s competitive nature will separate him for the his fellow DWTS castmates.

“Chris is very competitive, he wants to see what else [he] can do,” Shawn explained. “Jericho is the perfect guy for that [show].”

Still, other WWE stars see it as bold for him to putting on dancing shoes on national television.

“I’m impressed with him, I think he is very brave. He looks good and I believe he will win,” wrestler Wade Barrett explained.

But that may not have always been the case. WWE Superstar Christian was worried when he first heard that Chris had decided to take part in DWTS.

“I saw him dance at my wedding and it wasn’t pretty, I was really worried and nervous for him,” Christian told us. “But the first week he did great, and the second week he did so much better. I’m really proud of him and he has worked hard.”

While fellow WWE star Vladimir Koslov sees Chris’ participation in the popular show as a good thing for the sport as a whole.

“I think it’s incredible that a WWE Superstar can perform on DWTS and be very good,” he explained. “It’s a huge deal. I’m happy for him.”

Do you think that other WWE stars should take part in DWTS? Do you think Chris has a shot at winning? Who are you most excited to see dance tonight?
