Chris Jericho could be on his way back to WWE, according to the new June 2014 issue of WWE Magazine.
One of the feature articles looks at next month’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view, which takes place June 29 in Boston, Massachusetts at the TD Garden. Four Superstars with experience in Money in the Bank matches are profiled, including Cody Rhodes, Kofi Kingston, Christian and Chris Jericho, who is listed as a ‘current’ WWE Superstar:
“Already with a Hall of Fame-worthy career, Jericho could still use a win at this event to make us forget about some lackluster recent returns to the ring,” states WWE Magazine. A contract cash-in would be just the thing he needs to net him a seventh World title also.”
In recent weeks there have been rumors that Jericho is getting ready for another WWE run. The Wrestling Observer reported back on May 7th that WWE officials contacted Jericho to return, but he was unable to commit due to his touring schedule with FOZZY. ring,
Later that week, Jericho was interviewed by British newspaper The Mirror and spoke about his relationship with the company. “I have a good relationship with the WWE and there’s no animosity, but it’s not like we’re calling each other every day finding out what we had for dinner that night.”
When asked directly about a return to the ring, Jericho said,
“No time soon, I left last July and I’ve been working pretty much non-stop since then between Fozzy tours and doing the new Fozzy record and writing another book and doing my podcasts and a web series. There are a lot of projects in the Chris Jericho pantheon as always. That’s not to say that I won’t go back but I have no plans as of right now, just because I have so much other stuff going on that I’m enjoying. We’ll see, there’s no controversy or animosity it’s more of a timing thing; the timing has to be right for me and right for the WWE as well. When it is I’m sure we’ll both consider me coming back.”
