WWE News: Chris Jericho May Make His Return as a Babyface
Today marks the final day of Chris Jericho's 30-day suspension as a result of degrading the Brazilian flag during a WWE live event. Since his suspension, Jericho has been giving countdown tweets leading to his return this Monday on Raw.
This is the latest countdown tweet from Jericho:
One man, one goal One mission One heart, one soul Just one solution One flash of light One God, one vision One flesh, one bone...
Recent reports reveal where Jericho's direction may be heading when he returns—a resurgence as a babyface.
On last Monday's episode of Monday Night Raw, his return video was shown with Jericho's band Fozzy performing at a rock concert.
With his band going on tour during the summer, it would only make sense for the "Ayatollah of Rock-and-Rollah" to return.
Other than his run as a face in 2000 that really put him on the WWE map, he has only done short stints as a face since then—in 2004 during a feud with Christian and his "Save Us Y2J" return in 2007.
Whether a face or a heel, Jericho is one of the most charismatic Superstars in WWE history. He has the ability to control the crowd and always showcases one of the best matches of the night.
With his lackluster return since the first Raw of 2012, a face turn for Jericho is long overdue. The faces in the WWE are low, and Jericho would do a great job sharing the top position with CM Punk and John Cena.
Feuds with people such as Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, Jack Swagger, Miz, Drew McIntyre, Cody Rhodes or a returning Wade Barrett is just what Jericho needs to regain his well-deserved level of popularity.
It will truly be exciting to see if Jericho indeed returns as a face.
One last request, WWE—please bring back the countdown during his intro.
