From a recent interview with Between the Ropes:

"It makes me laugh because we do signings every day at Uproar (Festival) after our show. We have great fans but probably, I'd say one out of ten of them, will say when are you coming back to wrestling. It's like, it hasn't been a week. (laughs) Last week I lost the thing and then it's like on a Wednesday and when are you coming back. What is the percentage? I don't know. Depends what we have going on tour wise. I don't think we have anything booked as of yet. I know we're going to Australia at the beginning of March with Metallica. I don't when exactly ... when is WrestleMania? At the beginning of April? ... There's always a chance. Once again, it all depends on what's going on with Fozzy and where we'll be at with the band. There's always a chance. I definitely don't want to make this something where I'm on for another year again. If there's something where I can pop in from time to time. I think that would be pretty cool. Let's say as of right now there's a 50-50 chance."

Before Chris Jericho was even gone from WWE, fans and media were asking when he's coming back. His commitment to his band, Fozzy, and its growing slate of shows across the world has taken a serious toll on his ability to climb inside the ring and have four star matches with the likes of Dolph Ziggler but that doesn't mean he can't take a few months out here and there to make a brief comeback or two.

When asked if he'll be back in pro wrestling by the time WrestleMania 29 comes rolling around on April 7, 2013, Jericho simply said it depends solely on what Fozzy is doing at that time. So if you're a fan of Y2J's work inside the ring, root for his failure in his other major endeavor.

Anything to get him back sooner.
