As Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio, Jericho was talking about re-entering the WWE Universe just about a week ago.
“He had talks with WWE as recently as right before I left for Japan so this is a recent thing.”
Meltzer said that he believes that Jericho is still open to work with NJPW so his deal is likely different where he can work for both. Both are interested in continuing to work with each other as well. It looks like Jericho has made his decision about what company he wants to work for in the United States though.
