According to Bryan Alvarez's Tuesday update, Chris Jericho will be gone until November at the earliest, as he is touring the UK, Ireland and France with his band Fozzy from October 9th to October 23rd. Fozzy will also be touring Australia between December 2nd and December 5th, so expect him to be out longer than November. However, given that Jericho has shown no indication that he wants to retire (like Shawn Michaels) or that he's sick and tired of WWE (like Batista), expect him to be back within six months. Indeed, Alvarez reported in today's update that WWE even has a match in mind for Jericho at next year's WrestleMania. Given WWE's tendency to beat a great one off gimmick idea into the ground, maybe he'll be the surprise entrant that wins next year's Royal Rumble, following in the footsteps of John Cena's and Edge's surprise wins in recent years. His potential WrestleMania opponent may have been teased in how he was written out of the storylines at last night's Raw TV taping for next Monday night. Find out the big farewell for the time being angle that Jericho was involved in after the jump.
According to the detailed spoilers up at prowrestling.net, his potential WrestleMania opponent could be Randy Orton, as he laid Chris Jericho out with his stretcher job punt to the skull towards the end of next week's Raw.
