Chris Jericho's Fozzy tour leaves Mondays and SummerSlam free

On his Twitter account, Chris Jericho is still counting down the days until he can possibly return to WWE after being suspended for 30 days over messing with the Brazilian flag at the first ever live WWE event in that country:

"These go to 11" "Why don't you just make ten louder and call ten the loudest" "these go to 11"

The latest piece of evidence that he won't be missing any more time from wrestling than absolutely necessary is the initial tour dates for the third annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR festival which his band Fozzy will be a part of in a supporting role.

Interestingly, no dates are booked for Monday nights, which means that Jericho could conceivably appear on every episode of Raw while the six week festival takes place from mid August to the end of September. Moreover, Fozzy won't be appearing on the concert scheduled for Sunday August 19th in St Louis, MO, which just so happens to coincide with WWE's biggest PPV since WrestleMania 28, the 25th yearly SummerSlam extravaganza.

This doesn't necessarily mean that he's booked on the show already, as outside of the main event between Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H, nothing is set in stone, with the creative team being far too busy trying to rustle up "knock your socks off" ideas for the landmark 1000th episode of Monday Night Raw. But Jericho is certainly leaving his schedule open so he can be squeezed onto the show.

Given that he'll be a part timer for the immediate run up to SummerSlam and its aftermath, WWE may not want to use him in too prominent a role like one of the World title matches, but his star power would definitely add depth to the line up.

Another wrestler in a similar position is Randy Orton, who was recently suspended for 60 days after a second Wellness policy violation believed to be due to testing positive for the steroid Dianabol. As the two were scheduled to have a match together at No Way Out on Sunday night until both were suspended and thus have unfinished business, it would make sense to go back to that program for SummerSlam. That would require Vince McMahon to change his mind about keeping Orton off the card, but given his schizophrenic nature I wouldn't rule that out.
