Chris Jericho is back.

Last seen on WWE television on the August 20, 2012 edition of Raw, the Winnipeg, Canada native made a surprising return to the squared circle, entering the Royal Rumble as the event's second entrant. 

Though Jericho's return to WWE television was a welcomed one—those attending the event live at the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona exploded upon hearing "The Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla"'s entrance music—it remains to be seen whether Jericho's return will be permanent or simply a one-time appearance. 

After leaving the world's largest sport's entertainment promotion to tour with his band, Fozzy, Jericho had remained coy about a potential WWE return, insisting that he was ready to move on to other projects such as his upcoming gig as host of SyFy's Robot Combat League

If Jericho is indeed returning to the WWE, this will be the first time that "The Best in the World at What He Does" makes a WWE homecoming without first airing enigmatic vignettes on WWE television

Some signs point towards Jericho's Royal Rumble appearance being a full-time return (at least until he leaves again), including the resurrection of his last feud in the WWE with Dolph Ziggler.

Perhaps most indicative of whether or not Jericho's Royal Rumble appearance will lead to a full-time position on WWE's roster is the superstar's newest t-shirt on WWE's online shop

The shirt could be a sign that both the WWE and Jericho are interested in investing in the wrestler's future in the ring. 

Could 2013 be the year when the WWE Universe will once again see "The Man of 1,004 Holds" wrestling full-time on WWE television?
