Chris Jericho surprised the wrestling world Tuesday when he made his surprise return to SmackDown Live. What isn’t a surprise, however, is that we may not be seeing much of Jericho before he leaves us again.
On a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Jericho’s schedule with Fozzy may end up taking him off TV sooner rather than later, saying
“I’m not sure what his schedule is right now. I mean, he’s not advertised or listed for any shows going forward, but the reaction was certainly like he’s back. I know he’s still got concert stuff coming up, but aside from that, I don’t know if he’s got anything until September”
Fozzy has one date scheduled for Sept. 16. After that Jericho will potentially be free until the end of October when Fozzy starts a 3 week tour of Europe. Because of this, it’s possible Jericho could stick around through SummerSlam.
Until then, let’s drink in the gift of Jericho while we can, maaan. With Jericho seemingly involved in the US Title picture, we could be in for a treat.
