We noted before how Chris Jericho’s recent WWE return was apparently a one off deal as he wasn’t scheduled for any of the upcoming WWE Events.
Now Jericho himself has confirmed that his return was not pre planned and it didn’t have any long term implications behind it during the latest episode of Talk Is Jericho.
Chris was interviewing Breezango on the latest episode of his Podcast which was apparently recorded on the same day as his SmackDown Live return.
During the podcast, he also talked about his appearance on SD Live and revealed that he was in that place to shoot an episode of Southpaw Regional Wrestling and got ‘roped’ into up having a match at the show:
“That’s actually why I’m here today, to film that show Southpaw and talk to you guys, And now I got roped into having a match.”
This confirms that Jericho’s return was not planned in advance by WWE and they took advantage of him being around to give a surprise to fans.
Unfortunately, it also means that Chris Jericho’s return didn’t have any long term implications behind it and we may not see him on TV again in near future. Though he can still make occasional appearances down the line like the one he did recently
