According to Ringside News, a source within the World Wrestling Entertainment has leaked that former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho will be in Memphis, Tennessee on January 2, 2012. Coincidentally, for over a month WWE has been airing vignettes on WWE programing signaling the return of a superstar on the date of January 2, 2012.
According to the source, Jericho will fly into Memphis on the first of January and will be there until the third. Although the source will not confirm nor deny that Jericho is the man behind the cryptic promos, it is safe to assume that this all but proves that the promos are for him.
Despite the numerous times Jericho has told fans that he not the one returning, there is just too much evidence to the contrary. As a huge Jericho fan, I am excited—as I would imagine most wrestling fans are—for the return of Y2J.
It will be interesting to see how WWE goes about having him return, whether it be to open the show or even interrupt a match a la CM Punk's world title match against Dolph Ziggler.
Stay tuned as there should be more news in the coming days on whether or not there is any truth to this rumor, or if it's some jerk trying to get us all excited for nothing. I am a believer that we will see "The Best in the World at What He Does" return for another run.
