As reported earlier here on WrestleHeat.com, there are online reports that former WWE superstar and New York Times best selling author Chris Jericho will be appearing on the next season of hit ABC show Dancing With The Stars. The news of Jericho’s possible involvement has now been picked up by a number of mainstream media outlets, including USA Today. The cast of the upcoming season, which premieres on March 21, will be revealed tonight on ABC during “The Bachelor.”
Jericho was considered for the previous season of DWTS in fall 2010 prior to his WWE contract expiring, but had to decline due to scheduling issues. Jericho doing Dancing With The Stars would likely keep him tied up until the summer, so he probably would not be able to return to WWE full time until then.
