This is the best news I’ve read all day.
Rumors have long said Chris Jericho would be taking another break from WWE beginning after Hell in a Cell later this month. And the Fozzy frontman is a worker, so him telling us he’s not leaving doesn’t really mean anything - heck, he teased an exit months ago just for fun.
But as a huge fan of his heel work over the last few months, and especially his oddball partnership with Universal champion Kevin Owens, I’m gonna hold on to this quote from a recent interview Nick Hausman conducted with Y2J for Sports Illustrated’s 120 Sports:
I think the storyline with Kevin Owens and Jericho is just beginning. I think there’s a lot of legs to this storyline and it’s one of the rarest of things. It’s a storyline that basically built organically that was never supposed to be a storyline. I had that with Shawn Michaels in 2008 and Rey Mysterio in 2009. We just end up with this present, this great chemistry between KO and I. A lot of intrigue and mystery. A lot of interest from the people watching from the WWE Universe. I am really looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen at Survivor Series, Hell in a Cell and continuing forward. I think there’s a lot in the tank for Jericho and Owens. Especially from what’s transpired so far.
