He said he didn’t know when he’d come back to WWE, but Chris Jericho was always scheduled for the company’s tour of the Pacific (and for most of us, “come back” means show up on television... and there are no plans for Jericho to do that any time soon - that we know of).
So his return at a live event in Singapore isn’t shocking, nor is the fact he immediately resumed working heel for his show-opening match with Hideo Itami.
But if you miss him, these clips of his appearance and turn are pretty darn fun.
DRINK IT IN, MAN!

Sounds like a fun show all around, with Itami winning via GTS, a mini-Shield reunion where Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins took out The Miz & Samoa Joe, a NXT Women’s championship super-team of Asuka, Bayley & Sasha Banks defeating Alexa Bliss, Emma & Nia Jax, topped off with Roman Reigns beating Bray Wyatt (reportedly wrestling babyface because of heat on the Big Dog).
From here, the Raw crew heads to Tokyo for a pair of shows this weekend.
