One of the reasons that the recent WWE and Chris Jericho talks fell through is because he was not included as a playable character on the recently released WWE ’12 video game, according to F4WOnline.com. While that may not seem like a big deal to us, those that are included in video games receive royalty payments for their inclusion, and the feeling by Jericho is that he missed out on a five-figure royalty payment.
Regarding Jericho’s return, many backstage feel that he will be returning to the company by WrestleMania time and will be enticed by a big payment for wrestling at the show. As noted previously, the cryptic messages that are currently linked to during WWE programming are believed to be hyping Jericho’s return. However, if plans fall through with Jericho again, they may be used for the re-introduction of another star, such as The Undertaker.
