Update on Chris Jericho’s Tour with Fozzy

WWE Superstar Chrish Jericho and his band Fozzy will be touring the summer festival circuit after Wrestlemania 33, kicking things off with Welcome to Rockville in late April of 2017 followed by Rocklahoma and Carolina Rebellion in May of 2017.

During a recent interview with The Law, Jericho admitted that his WWE return was originally supposed to be for just four months:

“I have a very close working relationship with Vince McMahon and neither one of us expected this,” Jericho said. “Both of us would like to sit back and think we were the be all, end all wise oracles that predicted this. I will tell you this, my original plan when I came back last January was to stay until WrestleMania, four months. Then, it started going so good, I re-signed I think until July and then I re-signed until October and then I re-signed until November.

“Now it’s basically a month by month thing. I’ve got a certain time frame in mind but I can’t even say that because what was supposed to be four has already been ten because I am smart enough to know this. I’ve been doing this for a long time and to have – like you said, this could be my best run, I still think my 2008 Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Big Show might have been better but if it was, it’s not by far. This could be the best run I’ve ever had and at 45 years old, ten years ago, you would think that was old. Now, the Stones are still killing it at 74 years old so as long as physically I can go and still basically look the part, I don’t really put any limits on age or anything like that. I can still go out there and have the best match of the show on any given night and I’m working with guys that are 10-15 years younger that don’t feel that.”

    Y2j is the best thing wwe has since edge retired. He will always be the best in the world at what he does.

    Defo put this current run down as his best, but then again I don’t think he has ever had a bad run in the company. Underutilised, yeah, but that never stopped him giving his best.
    As Armitage said, he at least deserves a run with the US title to say he has done it all.

    When he does go, Raw is going to be 90% more boring without him. He’s the king of selling anything.

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    He needs the accolade of the United States Title under his belt, simply because it’s the only title he hasn’t earned.

    Loved Jericho’s current run. Gonna be sad to see it potentially end soon. I imagine it’ll end after his fued against Owens.
