Despite other reports, PWInsider reports that the cryptic promos airing for January 2012 are meant for Chris Jericho. News came out last week that talks fell through between WWE and Jericho. Also, Jericho recently said he would never wrestle for WWE again and when asked what he would be doing in January, he said working in Hawaii.
Word is that the deal between WWE and Jericho is not done yet but Vince McMahon wanted to get it out there now. WWE officials want Jericho on the RAW brand to help boost ratings.
It should be noted, however, that Chris Jericho responded to a follower on Twitter today, denying the claims that he will be appearing on the January 2nd RAW from Memphis. Instead, the former WWE Undisputed Champion claims that he will be some 4,000 miles away working in Hawaii. Of course, Jericho is no stranger to working the Internet.
