Regarding rumors of Chris Jericho returning to WWE as part of the cryptic 1/2/12 vignettes that have been playing on WWE TV for the past month, Jericho is still denying the reports. He is also calling reports of him wrestling CM Punk at WrestleMania 28 as “bogus, weak journalism.”
As noted previously, Jericho denied reports of even knowing anything about the mystery vignettes earlier this week. “Haven’t watched Raw in a month and I haven’t seen the mystery promos. Sorry…don’t know and don’t care so u can stop asking,” Jericho wrote on his Twitter account.
It should be noted that all signs still point to him being behind the vignettes despite the red herrings on his Twitter account to throw off his followers, according to multiple sources. It’s still expected that he will be returning to the company on January 2, 2012 when RAW emanates from Memphis.
