Chris Jericho Talks Surprise Return
Saturday, August 12, 2017
On his podcast, Chris Jericho discussed he surprise return on Smackdown a few weeks ago to face off against Kevin Owens and AJ Styles in a triple threat match for the United States Title. Jericho revealed that he had been in town to reprise his role as interviewer Clint Bobski for another set of Southpaw Regional Wrestling episodes. He was there to film an interview with Fandango and Tyler Breeze in their character roles and got roped into making a one-off appearance that night.
Jericho has been off WWE since May when he lost the US Title to Kevin Owens on Smackdown and then took time off to tour with his band Fozzy. In his match with Styles and Owens, he took the pinfall from Styles to lose the match. Jericho has taken lots of time off and made returns over the years as it helps him keep his character fresh and doesn't mind putting over other talent at this point. As per usual when he disappears from on screen, no time table for his next return has been made. He is not scheduled for any house shows or for the upcoming Summerslam show, so it is up to anyone's guess when we will see Jericho in the ring again.
