Last week, former WWE Champion Chris Jericho spoke to FortMcMurrayToday.com to promote his band Fozzy. During the interview, he was asked about his status with WWE and if he would returning to the company. “I have no plans for it right now,” Jericho said. “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.”
During the interview, Jericho plugged that a new album will be dropped by Fozzy this upcoming December as well as another in early 2012.
