Chris Jericho May “Never” Return to WWE

Chris Jericho was recently featured in an AP News article which heavily discussed his band Fozzy but the interviewer also asked Jericho on when he plans to return to WWE. His response made it seem as if he wasn’t too bothered if WWE calls him back or not.

Jericho has not appeared on WWE TV since he was written out of storylines when he was attacked by WWE United States Champion Kevin Owens on SmackDown Live earlier this month. Here is what he had to say:

“WWE, it’s the brand name. I’m just a cog,” he said. “An important part of it, people like it. But this is our band. People are here to see us. That to me, is a little more of a rush. It’s not under the auspices of another name. It’ll be a long time before I go back,” he said. “If I ever do go back, if I never go back, it’s fine. If I never wrestle another match, it wouldn’t bother me.”

As previously reported, Jericho is being advertised for WWE Live Events on June 28th in Singapore at Singapore Indoor Stadium, June 30th and July 1st in Tokyo, Japan at the Ryogoku Kokugikan.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
