Chris Jericho is one of the big names in WWE, and the American-born Canadian 43-year-old has many “belts” in his collection. As well as being a professional wrestler, media personality, musician, actor, and author, Jericho is a real polymath.
Well-known and most-loved for his over-the-top rock star persona, Chris Jericho has been dubbed the “The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla” and has won over 30 championship belts during his long and illustrious career.
But is he making a return to wrestling? He spoke to the British newspaper, The Mirror, about his ongoing relationship with the WWE:
“For relevant reasons. Once in a while you’ll shoot texts back and forth with somebody, or if there’s some business thing going on, like if they need something signed or a scan for a video game or something like that but it’s not like I talk to the WWE every week and give them my thoughts on what’s going on with them or they call me and give their opinions on what I’ve been doing.”
Jericho went on to talk about the fact that even though a return by him isn’t imminent, it may be on the cards: “I have a good relationship with the WWE and there’s no animosity, but it’s not like we’re calling each other every day finding out what we had for dinner that night.”
When asked directly about a return to the ring Chris Jericho said:
“No time soon, I left last July and I’ve been working pretty much non-stop since then between Fozzy tours and doing the new Fozzy record and writing another book and doing my podcasts and a web series. There are a lot of projects in the Chris Jericho pantheon as always. That’s not to say that I won’t go back but I have no plans as of right now, just because I have so much other stuff going on that I’m enjoying. We’ll see, there’s no controversy or animosity it’s more of a timing thing; the timing has to be right for me and right for the WWE as well. When it is I’m sure we’ll both consider me coming back.”
Nevertheless, some inside sources seem to be suggesting that Chris Jericho may indeed be planning some kind of dramatic comeback to the world of wrestling, in addition to the various things he is up to now.
