The return of Chris Jericho to the WWE has been one of the hottest topics now for over a year.
Ever since leaving the company back in September 2010, Y2J has been keeping himself very busy during his time away from the ring. Besides touring with his rock band Fozzy, Jericho appeared on the recent season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars, as well as publishing his second book, Undisputed.
It's pretty clear, with all this non-wrestling stuff going on, that coming back to wrestling may be the last thing on Jericho's mind right now, at least for a little while longer. Although for some reason, complaining about other wrestlers is one of his favorite hobbies recently.
If he really thinks that all these guys are stealing his style and slandering his name, why doesn't he come back and do something about it?
I'm looking at you Miz...Be afraid.
Thankfully, according to lordsofpain.net, rumors are starting to circulate that Jericho has recently been in touch with the WWE about his future with the company, and even a possible return. Unfortunately, the rumor also says that if he does decide to return, it won't be until 2012.
To make matters worse, there's a possibility that the aging Jericho may work a much lighter schedule, similar to what The Rock is currently doing.
For most Jericho fans out there, including myself, a limited amount of Y2J in the WWE would be a little tough to swallow. But if that's what happens, I guess I can't complain too much about it.
I'll also be the first to say it, Jericho really needs to stop this whole Fozzy thing. Just please get back in the ring and do something that people actually respect you for.
With Jericho's return to the WWE still several months away (if he even decides to come back at all), there's really no telling what his role will be once he steps back into the same squared circle that first made him a star. A feud with his clone The Miz would be the ideal choice in my opinion. There's also new superstar CM Punk, and of course let's not forget the possibility that his name could get thrown into the mix of people who may face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 28.
Still, no matter what happens, it's nice to hear that maybe the ball is starting to roll on this and Jericho is finally starting to consider an eventual comeback.
However, he's still got plenty of tours to do, books to write and wrestlers to insult via Twitter. So don't expect "The (self-proclaimed) Best in The World at What He Does" to walk down a WWE ramp anytime before 2012.
