Chris Jericho appeared in the WWE back in the month of July which was his last storyline appearance. It was a one-off night for the veteran to come back in order to give the US title back to AJ Styles.

It was the night after Battleground PPV where Y2J was back as a true legend of the company to put over the prime superstar on Smackdown.

This is that one reason as of why Jericho is considered to be the greatest of all time by many in the pro-wrestling circuit.

Despite not having anything to achieve in the wrestling ring, he continues to perform even after spending 25 years which is why he was back onboard for WWE Raw 25th anniversary. Nowadays, he even started working outside the WWE.

In case you don’t know, the former WWE world champion recently worked with the New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

It was at the biggest event of the NJPW promotion on January 4th where he took on Kenny Omega in an IWGP United States championship match. Once again, Jericho digested a loss like a true veteran sportsman.His appearance made the Wrestle Kingdom 12 event hosted in the Tokyo Dome, the greatest ever in the history.

Going forward, Jericho’s stint with the NJPW came to an end as he is out of the company. That speculated his appearance at the 31st annual Royal Rumble event took place on January 28th.

As reported by, the ‘ayatollah of Rock n Rolla’ was booked on that night which did not allow him to make an appearance in the 30-man battle royal.

According to his band Fozzy’s official website, on that night he was in Paris, France performing in a concert. It is a joint venture alongside Steel Panther.

Also, going forward in February, March, and April, Fozzy has a packed schedule which indicates that chances are pretty low that one of the greatest superstars of all time will come back to the WWE, prior to Wrestlemania. This is indeed a sad news for the WWE Universe.

The self-proclaimed GOAT has a phenomenal run during his stint in 2016-17. He used to be a marquee attraction on WWE Raw, each week that extended his contract.

By virtue of this, he had a great run with the United States Championship before losing it to Kevin Owens at Wrestlemania 33.
