It is time to discuss Chris Jericho's future with the WWE. This topic seems to come up every week or so. In the end, none of it really means much in the grand scheme of things.

Two days ago, WWE.com released a very interesting article about Over the Limit this Sunday. Basically, the story outlines his comeback since January.

A very big note is made that this will be Jericho's fourth straight chance at the WWE World Title on pay-per-view. Of course, he has fallen short the the last three events of picking up gold.

To no surprise, Jericho took to his official Twitter account to post his thoughts. Here is what he posted about the story:

Hey Alex Giannini, heres an idea-shut your effen mouth and stop spreading BS rumours.

My Thoughts on This News

Let's clear up a few things first.

Alex Giannini is the WWE writer for the story posted. Many may not know his name, but I thought the piece was well written and played into Jericho's uncertain future.

Secondly, Jericho did not exactly deny anything.

He said to stop spreading rumors and shut his mouth. Perhaps he just meant to keep it quiet that he may be leaving and not play into that thought?

Of course, the final part to point out is his hash tag of "not leaving."

As many know by now, I do not follow any WWE or TNA talents. I have zero reason to, and believing anything posted by them has zero credibility. Until the company confirms something, it does not mean anything on their accounts.

From Jericho "messing with fans" before January 2nd to Lord Tensai denying his WWE return on Twitter to the laughable posts from Hulk Hogan every day.

Why bother?

It doesn't mean anything.

That is my conclusion on Jericho.

I think he is leaving sometime. He can shout from the mountain tops all day long that he isn't going away, but his track record does not show him to be honest with fans. Why start believing him now?

Could his final match be after losing to Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, or Randy Orton this Sunday? Could he stick around another month or two? Could he stay for another year?

Never say never...
