He already told us his latest run in pro wrestling has been extended “month-to-month” because of how well it’s been going, so we shouldn’t be too surprised when we see signs that Chris Jericho may be leaving WWE, at least as a full-time performer, soon.
But we also knew his break-up with his best friend Kevin Owens was inevitable, and that hasn’t made it sting any less.
Looking at Y2J’s post-WrestleMania schedule, it’s clear he’ll be cutting down (or out) time in wrestling this Spring. Jericho announced in October that his band Fozzy had a deal with their label to put out new music in 2017...
Proud to announce that we just signed a new record deal with @centurymedia! Get ready for @FOZZYROCK 2017!!— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) October 15, 2016
...and they’re hitting the festival circuit this Spring, with appearances set for Monster Energy-sponsered shows like Jacksonville, Florida’s “Welcome to Rockville” on April 29 - 30, “Carolina Rebellion” in Charlotte from May 5 - 7 and “Rocklahoma” in Pryor, Oklahoma on Memorial Day weekend.
In addition to touring and working on a new album, Jericho’s fourth book, No Is a Four-letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life, comes out in August, and will likely involve a book-signing tour to promote its release.
Looks like, just as “The List” disappeared from Raw last night (Dec. 5), we probably only have three or four more months to drink in the Gift of Jericho on a regular basis.
You ready to say goodbye?
