Chris Jericho: I have no intentions of leaving WWE anytime soon

Good news for all you Jericholics out there. Y2J told the Winnipeg Free Press recently that he's got no plans on leaving WWE anytime soon.

"I have no intentions of leaving anytime soon, I'm in the best shape of my life, I feel great. The thing for me is I always have lots of other stuff going on and I always have. So sometimes I leave to work on other projects, but I'll always come back. When I was growing up in Winnipeg I wanted to be two things: I wanted to be a wrestler and I wanted to be in a rock and roll band and I've been lucky enough to have both of those dreams come true."

Of course, that's similar to what The Rock said when he came back and he's been away doing movies and outside ventures far more than he's been back inside the ring, though he did actually have a match before Jericho. Which is kind of insane crazy when you think about it.

There's also the small matter to consider of Fozzy, Jericho's rock band, recently signing a worldwide deal with Century Media Records, a predominantly hard rock label for smaller acts like Fozzy. Still, it's a fairly big deal for the band and something Jericho has been working towards for some time now.

However, he's booked for dates with WWE past WrestleMania, so he's planning to stick around at least until around Summerslam. After that is anyone's guess.

Maybe by then the jacket will be having matches by itself and we won't even need Jericho.
