– Chris Jericho spoke with FortMcMurrayToday.com this past week to talk about Fozzy. Regarding pro wrestling and returning to the ring any time soon, Jericho said:
“I have no plans for it right now. Like I said, I didn’t leave wrestling for any bad reasons, it’s just that I had a lot of other stuff that was going on in my life that I’ve been wanting to work on, and Fozzy is one of the main reasons for that. I know sometimes that pisses wrestling fans off, but I don’t care. I do what I do to make myself happy. I’ve done wrestling for 20 years and I’ve been in Fozzy for 12. Fozzy is in the same place now after 12 years, that I was as a performer after 12. Just really on the verge of becoming something bigger. So I’d be crazy to not to devote as much time to the band as I can and take it as far as we can go. Wrestling is always there, it’s not going anywhere. Will I come back? I don’t know. But I have no plans of it right now.”
Jericho also noted that Fozzy will be recording a new album in December of this year and early 2011. The album will likely be released in May of 2012, keeping him tied up for a while.
