At this time, Chris Jericho is busy with his schedule for his music band, Fozzy. He is travelling all over the United States doing live concerts. He is all set to go to the United Kingdom as well for the same purpose in the upcoming weeks. The tour will come to an end on June 28th with a live show at Seattle, Washington.
The WWE universe should be excited since he is being advertised for the house shows once he is done with Fozzy tour. In the last week of June, WWE will head towards China with house shows. Y2J is being promoted to appear in at least two of the live shows there and is expected to return on live television to resume his feud against Owens on Smackdown Live.
The question with his return was whether he will perform full-time for the company, yet again. In a recent interview with Uproxx.com, the same speculation was raised for him and he came up with a negative answer.
He stated that he will never ever work in a part-time schedule in the WWE. The ayatollah of ‘rock n rolla’ always prefers to travel along with the young guys on the road is the main reason behind this. It builds up the connection with the superstars of the new era and makes him learn so much even at this age. It is also the sole reason why his 2016 stint became a huge success. Check out his entire statement from the interview:
“No, I won’t do it because that’s not the way it should be. When you’re there, you should go on the road. That’s how you help guys to learn. That’s how I got better. This whole year I got way better because of working with the younger guys, who then were learning from me as well. They need that. And it was a great year with just an awesome locker room, great people, lots of fun.
I had as much fun out of the ring as I did in the ring. And in 2015, all I did was live events. I didn’t do TV at all. It’s like the anti-type Brock Lesnar. I wouldn’t have a problem doing that either. Maybe I’ll never go back on TV again. Maybe I’ll just do live events”
The fact that Kevin Owens is still hosting the Highlight Reel without the original host, Chris Jericho is to keep the feud intact between the two of them. It is evident that these two will lock horns, soon and the fans will be able to get the “Gift of Jericho”, again.
