Chris Jericho's current run in the WWE has been one of the high points of 2016 so far. From heel turns and epic feuds to his ridiculous 'Stupid Idiot' catchphrase, the veteran Superstar has rolled back the years since returning at January's Royal Rumble.,

However, with Jericho, there is always an understanding that his commitments away from the squared circle - namely with his rock band Fozzy - mean an extended break from WWE is never too far away. 

As a result, there has been a growing fear amongst fans that Y2J will be stolen away from their screens in the midst of this exciting run. Comments from the Superstar himself today should alleviate those concerns.

Speaking in an interview with International Business Times, via NoDQ, Jericho revealed that he there is nothing dragging him away from the WWE for the rest of 2016:

"Fozzy, we made a concerted idea to not do anything in 2016," revealed the 45-year-old. 

"We’re gonna do a new record, it’ll be released early 2017, then it’s full-time back in Fozzy. Until then, I’m having so much fun in the WWE.

"I plan to continue for the next who knows how long it is. I’d never say, but suffice it to say it’s going to be for a little while longer for sure.” 

Good times ahead

That's great news for fans of Jericho's rejuvenated character. With five months and six pay-per-views to go before the end of the calendar year, there is going to plenty more opportunities to see the nine-time Intercontinental Champion annoy wrestlers and fans alike.

It also means WWE fans can expect to see Jericho selected in the upcoming WWE Draft, and, with his huge experience, you wouldn't bet against the creative team giving him a prominent role on either RAW or SmackDown come mid-July.

Just who the veteran will feud with remains to be seen. But, for the first time in a few years, WWE fans are actually genuinely excited to see what's up next for Jericho.

For the time being at least, it is nothing but professional wrestling - and that can't be a bad thing.
