WWE Teases Chris Jericho’s Departure

Posted by Matt Boone May 17, 2012 7 Comments

The WWE website has a new storyline article up looking at how Chris Jericho has failed to win gold since returning in January and how this effects World Heavyweight Title match at Over the Limit as he goes against champion Sheamus, Randy Orton and Alberto Del Rio.

It’s been widely reported that Chris Jericho will be taking time off from WWE this summer to tour with his metal band Fozzy – and the WWE article is already planting the seeds for Jericho’s departure.

The following is an excerpt from the article, which you can read here in its entirety:

“Further, if Jericho fails to come away with the gold, will Over the Limit be the last time the WWE Universe ever sees the “Ayatollah of Rock n’ Rollla” in the ring? Or can Jericho save his career with a huge win against three formidable opponents?

If this is to be his final stand, the smart money would be to bet on Jericho walking out of PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., with the title in hand. Jericho is a survivor, and like a cornered lion, he’ll be at his most dangerous with his back to the wall. Jericho will do anything — anything — to emerge from Over the Limit with the World Heavyweight Championship secured around his waist.

But even if he does overcome the other three competitors in the Fatal 4-Way, there’s already plenty of speculation that the WWE Universe won’t see much of Jericho in the coming months. His heavy metal band Fozzy is set to release a new studio album this summer, and tour dates have been planned.

That said, will his match at WWE Over the Limit be his lingering legacy? And if Y2J does decide to walk off into the sunset, will he do so with the World Heavyweight Championship around his waist?”

      We all know this is just a storyline. Jericho isn’t leaving the company, and if there’s a good absence of him within the shows and company, then we all know he’s just on tour with his band named, “Fozzy”.

        I feel that this angle is ‘real life’ being turned into a story line, which is WWE’s pattern over the past several months. His departure is all but a certainty given that he will be touring with Fozzy, but he will probably return after that at a time when it suits both him and Vince. They’re ‘selling’ this as a storyline to make it sound more compelling.

      It is about money for all of us and we all know why and can’t argue that point either. As for jerico well if he can do both then so be it. he can work a limited wwe schedule and he can have fun with it too.

      Jericho won’t do shit to Sheamus randy orton or del rio lets go great white Sheamus

      He’s not into dope and he’s not a trick, He’s married and he’s been a pro for over 20 years. I think he has enough coin to take a few months off to waste his own money to live his dream of being in a tribute band to Helloween or whatever 80’s hair band they’re trying to be.
