Chris Jericho set for early WWE return

Published Add your comment

Night of Champions was said to have been Chris Jericho's last WWE match for a while, because he was off to tour with his band Fozzy.

It seems this plan has changed, as the first ever Undisputed WWE Champion is set for an early WWE return around next month. He took to Twitter to announce the news to WWE Fans: "I am RETURNING TO THE #WWE in NOV!!" he wrote.

Joining the roster 

Y2J is set to join the thin WWE roster on their second and final European Tour of the year. This is thought to be because of many superstars being out with injuries, and could be the main reason The Rock was brought back this week. 

Superstars like Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns and Wade Barrett head up the currently injured list, whilst Randy Orton's new WWE contract also dictates shorter working hours for the former World Champion. 

Whilst it hasn't been confirmed if Jericho will be on the Raw and Smackdown shows taped from Europe, it is confirmed that he will definitely be a part of them and will be travelling to the UK with the company. 

Last time we saw Jericho he was facing Randy Orton at Night of Champions in what was thought to be a filler final match for Y2J after what had been questionable feud with Bray Wyatt. 

Bad feud

The rivalry has been criticised by many after it was reported that Jericho had come back in order to put Bray Wyatt over to the WWE Universe and set him up for what is thought to be a bright future, but Jericho instead was the one who was most over with the fans and it seemed the whole storyline was a bit of a let down.

Bray himself has been kept off WWE TV since then as speculation builds about the splitting of The Wyatt family and the Eater of Worlds. The latest rumours see Luke Harper going solo and Bray Wyatt gaining two new partners in The Ascension, with no rumours on the future of Erick Rowan at all.

It is unlikely Jericho will be put into a storyline for what should be a very short stint next month, but fans all over Europe will be happy to see the superstar live once more.
