WWE News: Jericho's Status, Cena's Return, Recent Heel Turns
Friday, May 19, 2017
Chris Jericho is expected to be back with the WWE likely after his tour with Fozzy ends. While it was reported previously that Jericho would be back at some point in the future due to his recent success in the WWE, there was no date or time frame given on when exactly that would happen, but according to sources he will be back soon and he will pick up where he left off which is his program with Kevin Owens.
John Cena is expected to be back on Smackdown Live by early July.
Recently, there were a couple of heel turns by Goldust and Apollo Crews. This was a last minute decision and the reason behind this is the injury of Braun Strowman. With five of Raw's top stars now involved in one match at Extreme Rules instead of three, the heel turns were likely needed to create more matches for the PPV.
