WWE News: Chris Jericho Bids Goodbye To WWE Universe, Update On Return
The inevitable was coming for quite a few months now and finally happened on this past episode of Smackdown Live. The veteran Chris Jericho went on a hiatus from the WWE for an indefinite time.
Prior to this Tuesday night, Y2J won the United States championship at the Payback PPV which let him move to the blue brand of the WWE. The fans were thrilled with the possibility of the reigning champion probably not parting ways with the company.
However, it was just a twist in the tale with the similar outcome. As a result, the rematch between Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho took place on Smackdown Live. Quite expectedly, Owens recaptured the title to indicate the same.
Furthermore, he delivered a brutal assault to the former US title holder to write him off from WWE television. This was to ensure the storyline perspective in the WWE. However, fans started to mourn over the fact that they will no more witness the “Gift of Jericho” on television, every week.
The legendary superstar posted the following update on Instagram to cement the fact that this was it, for now. He thanked all his fans for making this WWE stint a success. Check out it here:

With that being said it certain that he will not return to WWE, anytime soon. For now, he will be working dates touring with his music band, Fozzy for the entire summer season. The tour will commence from tomorrow night and will continue until June 28th.
Once this is done, he will be busy for recording new albums for the band, supposedly. So, at least we can’t expect him until the end of this year.
As per the rumour roundup from Cagesideseats.com, Chris Jericho will be done with all the Fozzy commitments by the end of this year. So, there will be no bar for him to return to the WWE, once more. The Instagram post also suggests that he should be back for one more stint.
Jericho is considered as one of the reasons why the brand split came out as a success. He was a major attraction on Monday Night Raw for the entire time being making it worth a watch. It will be hard for WWE to fill up the void created by him.
