Published 78 Comments

Long-standing WWE Superstar Chris Jericho today revealed that he has put pen to paper on a new contract with the WWE, giving fans a sneak peak of the document itself in the process.

The announcement came as the veteran wrestler surprised fans in Montgomery, Alabama - making an unexpected appearance at a WWE live event.

New Deal

There had been growing speculation about Jericho's future in the company but, while many are sure to be glad that he is hanging around for a while longer, the details of the contract are sure to leave many within the WWE Universe disappointed.

As revealed by the wrestler himself it appears that his return to the WWE roster on a more permanent basis is going to be limited to non-TV shows.

Of those live show dates listed there are 16 in total, beginning with his Jan 10th Montgomery show and ending on March 1st in Buffalo, New York.

Jericho had commented on his WWE future earlier in January and hinted that a live-event only schedule could well be on the horizon - likening himself to an "anti-Brock Lesnar" in that regard.

That now appears to have come to fruition with both parties agreeing on a new contract. What that means for Jericho's WrestleMania 31 chances however remains to be seen with all signs now pointing to one of the WWE's most popular stars missing out on the biggest stage the company has to offer.

Surprise appearances

Any fans of the WWE though will know that Vince McMahon and co are not averse to springing a shock or two - especially at big events such as WrestleMania.

As such Chris Jericho appearing on our TV screens again cannot be completely ruled out, and his live show comeback this weekend proves that the man himself can pop up anywhere at any time.

In terms of his in-ring performance, Jericho's comeback in Alabama resulted in a win with the veteran defeating Luke Harper in a singles match up.

What do you think WWE fans? Are you happy Jericho is back in some capacity, or do you want to see him go out on the biggest stage of them all? Has he still got what it takes? Let us know in the comments section below...
