After weeks of speculation following cryptic videos hyping a major WWE return, the man behind the mystery may have finally been revealed.

Marc Middleton of PW Insider is reporting that Chris Jericho is scheduled to make his much-anticipated return on the first Monday Night Raw of 2012, which is less than three weeks away.

According to Middleton's report, Jericho will be a major part of WWE's Royal Rumble pay-per-view and is currently slated to face WWE champion CM Punk at WrestleMania.

WrestleMania XXVIII is shaping up to have a very impressive lineup thus far. After the events of Monday's Raw, Triple H appears to be getting a rematch against the Undertaker and his streak. This year's WrestleMania was a major disappointment and it looks as though the WWE is making a significant effort to bolster the card for 2012.
