Pro wrestler Chris Jericho is never going over the edge.

Don't ask him to. He won't do it. He's seen too much as the host of a new ABC show called, "Downfall," a show where if contestants can't answer a question, they -- or the potential prizes that they could have won -- literally will get dropped from over the edge.

The show premieres on Tuesday, and Page 2 caught up with Jericho recently to find out about his fearless moments, how he's gotten over his own downfalls and what he would put up on a conveyor belt to drop over the edge of a rooftop.

Why'd you want to host this show?

"When I first heard about the show and the concept, I was intrigued at the prospect of what it could be. It's a big show. It's a huge opportunity for me and when I saw the actual stage set up itself, I just couldn't believe how massive it was. It looked like something U2 would play on in a giant stadium. Plus everybody has a primal urge when you're a kid and drop something off the rooftop and see if it breaks or not. You want to see it smash into a thousand pieces."
