It’s been only a few weeks since Chris Jericho left WWE to tour with his band Fozzy, but the WWE Fans are already missing him. During his recent interview with Uproxx, Jericho talked about his departure and revealed when he knew it was time to go.
According to Chris, he knew it was time to leave WWE just after he turned babyface following his break up with Kevin Owens because that’s where he started having problems:
“For this one [WWE run], I knew that it was time to go because you get to a certain level, then you turn baby face, and then that’s where you start having problems, because with the baby face you either win the title and you’re John Cena, or you start going down through the ranks. And that wouldn’t work for me'”
When asked if he’ll ever become a part timer who shows up at WrestleMania, the former world champion said no because ‘that’s not the way it should be’:
“No, I won’t do it because that’s not the way it should be. When you’re there, you should go on the road. That’s how you help guys to learn. That’s how I got better. This whole year I got way better because of working with the younger guys, who then were learning from me as well. They need that.”
At the moment it’s not known when or if Chris Jericho will return to WWE television anytime in future. Though he is expected to work on some upcoming WWE Live Events.
