Chris Jericho has always been a popular wrestler and he's certainly had a quality for getting some of the most bizarre things over during his career, from a list to simply the word 'It,' but he seems to have now found his most popular catchphrase yet.
After defeating Hangman Page to become the first-ever AEW World Champion, the veteran wrestler went on a huge rant backstage at the AEW roster which led to him finding a bottle of champagne.
From there the rest is history, as "A Little Bit of Bubbly" was born. With the phrase by Jericho taking the wrestling world by storm, tons of memes and videos were created to keep it trending. Within this article, we will rank the 10 best so far. As these memes are primarily videos, links to the full clips will be quoted below the entries' images.

As soon as you start blending anything with Pulp Fiction you know you're onto a winner and that's exactly what this video is, as the classic scene from the movie discussing burgers in Europe is given a taste of the bubbly.
With John Travolta and Sam Jackson discussing the best fast food burgers in the world, someone smartly saw the opportunity to add a little bit of bubbly here, and it just works nicely.
The only reason that this doesn't rank higher is that it can get slightly repetitive.
9 A Combination Of Catchphrases

As we mentioned at the start of this list, Chris Jericho is well known for being the king of the catchphrase, with Y2J having created some incredibly iconic moments over the course of his career.
One fan smartly took a backstage interview that Jericho conducted with Tom Phillips during his WWE career and excellently turned it into the latest meme for Jericho's newest catchphrase.
The brilliance of this particular example is that it combines so many of his best phrases, from "It" to "Stupid Idiot" and even "Drink It In Man," of course adding that "Little Bit Of The Bubbly."
8 Can You Hear Me
Full meme: Link.
Firstly, simply hearing Chris Jericho's adult voice come out of Bart Simpson's mouth is a hilarious sight, which instantly makes this one of the best bubbly creations, but the fact that this is so layered makes it even greater.
Anything to do with The Simpsons is going to be funny when you are using it in meme form, because only the best clips get selected, with this being a perfect example of a smart clip choice.
The reason this is so good is that you know exactly what the pay off is going to be, but the clip makes you wait for it, adding some tension with the fly and the lip-licking before delivering the hammer blow.

Something that has become common with these bubbly videos has been remixing popular songs with Chris Jericho's hilarious outburst, and one of the best has been this version with the Jackson 5.
Hearing a young Michael Jackson blame it on the bubbly is just a whole lot of fun, with his young voice all of a sudden switching into Jericho's mid-celebration, creating a truly hilarious piece of content.
This is a great example of just how fun these videos can be, with an incredibly popular song being blended with a current trend.
6 WCW Thunder
So Chris Jericho's #ALittleBitOfTheBubbly meme seems to be the hottest new thing, and maybe someone else beat me to the punch, but this is the first thing that popped to my head, lol #WCWThunder pic.twitter.com/xnrzCNCtHL

This is another example that brings the popular catchphrase back into the wrestling world, however, it mingles with the video gaming universe at the same time, with the clip being taken from the WCW Thunder video game.
The video game might not be known by all of the younger fans in wrestling, but it works perfectly within this context. The cheesy phrases said by the wrestlers chosen by the player set up a bubbly line perfectly.
As you can see, Jericho just sets up the bubbly line, promising that the gamer will never lose...A little bit of bubbly!

Another incredible example of bringing music and bubbly together, this meme uses the hit song "Mambo No. 5," swapping out the Mambo and bringing the Bubbly!
The video is absolutely hilarious and while it is one of the more simple videos that have been made, with just a few moments changed, it just works in a funny way that doesn't get old no matter how many times you see it.
This was one of the first really big popular videos that happened, with Chris Jericho himself responding about how much he enjoyed the video.
4 Brock Loves The Bubbly
Had this on repeat in the gym 😂
— JT Dunn (@thejtdunn) September 5, 2019
Who would have thought that combining Brock Lesnar's theme song with this amazing catchphrase would work, but it is simply hilarious to listen to, with Lesnar's repetitive tune being taken to the next level.
Perhaps it is because Brock is such a serious wrestler who isn't known for jokes that makes this so funny, or that Lesnar and Jericho don't have a great relationship in real life, but there is just something so perfect about this meme.
Because the edit has been done so well, with Jericho coming in at the right times, it allows for a whole lot of fun when watching, especially with the Beast bopping up and down along with the whole thing.
3 They May Take Our Lives...
Not sure if this one has been done already, but I had to get in some of the @IAmJericho #ALittleBitOfTheBubbly action. #AEW pic.twitter.com/D1T8jF6n59

Epic movie phrases and "A little bit of bubbly" just go hand in hand, as this clip from Braveheart proves perfectly.
Because of the passion and the seriousness of the speech, when Jericho chimes in, there is no way to not burst out laughing. This meme is the perfect blend of serious drama and comedy.
It certainly creates the desired effect, with this being one of the top videos created by fans in order to make people laugh, turning a solemn moment into something comedic.

For those who are old enough to remember the popular children's cartoon show, The Powerpuff Girls, then you will no doubt find this hilarious.
The fact that someone had the thought to bring in the opening clip of the show and mix it with the latest Jericho catchphrase is simply incredible. Thankfully, someone did have the thought to do it and created a truly incredible video, with this being one of the funniest of the lot.
1 The Joker Wants Bubbly
Had to combine one of the best movies of all time with one of the best catchphrases of all time #ALittleBitOfBubbly thank you Heath and @IAmJericho 😂 pic.twitter.com/DsahFc4AnZ

Without a doubt, the best so far has been this scene from The Dark Knight, with The Joker's classic scene at Bruce Wayne's party being dubbed into Chris Jericho's newest party line.
Seeing a character as wild and wacky as The Joker getting involved in something like this is a hilarious combination that just works perfectly. However, the reason it works so well is because of the party setting. The Joker actually grabs and drinks some bubbly!
