WWE News: Chris Jericho Mocks Survivor Series Return Rumors

With WWE Survivor Series taking place in a little over 13 hours from now, WWE legend and Fozzy lead singer Chris Jericho sent out a tweet to his followers, likely just to screw with WWE fans as Jericho likes to do from time to time.

Survivor Series is taking place at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. In the tweet shown below, Jericho talks about how he is on the way to St. Louis to have lunch with Randy Orton and Sting, both of whom have been rumored to be making appearances on tonight’s Survivor Series show.

Chris Jericho was last seen at a WWE event when he hosted his WWE talk show The Highlight Reel on the November 14 installment of WWE SmackDown, where he interviewed Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

It will likely be a long time before Chris Jericho is in a WWE ring again. He certainly won’t be anywhere near one tonight, as Fozzy is playing a show at Wooly’s in Des Moines, Iowa.

Jericho was asked about possibly having a match at WrestleMania 31 in March when he was on Wrestling Observer Radio with Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer, and he pretty much shot down the idea, citing that Fozzy will be in the middle of an international tour around WrestleMania time. Fozzy’s international tour begins on March 4 in Belfast, Ireland, and wraps up on March 21 in Bochum, Germany.

Rumor has it that Jericho is in the middle of negotiating a deal with WWE that would bring him back to the company at some point after the Fozzy tour concludes. Jericho’s deal would have him working just house shows with no television appearances unless WWE comes up with something good for Jericho to do. Jericho has made it clear that he doesn’t want to do anything on WWE television unless it has the potential to be great.

It appears that Jericho still has a strong passion for making whatever he does in WWE the best it can be, and has said in the past that if he no longer feels like whatever match he’s participating in can’t be a contender for “match of the night,” then he doesn’t want to wrestle anymore. Jericho has also said that if he’s going to come back and be a weekly television character for any period of time, that he doesn’t want to just be there to “fill a spot,” and he always wants to be doing something that’s meaningful on the show.

There’s a small chance that Chris Jericho could have a match at WrestleMania 31. However, it’s more likely that he’ll return after WrestleMania, as the show could see the return of multiple WWE legends, and Jericho would be “lost in the shuffle,” which is why he didn’t return for WrestleMania 30 this past April.
