The Royal Rumble is going to be in Pittsburgh this upcoming Sunday, and so will Chris Jericho, who happens to be working the same auto show that Sheamus is scheduled for. That has led to speculations and rumors that Jericho will be making his return to WWE this weekend.

"I don't really care what people think about me. I think if someone's underrated, that they're under appreciated. I'm fully confident in my abilities, I know every night, in my mind, that I'm going to have a good match. People feel underrated when they think they're not getting the credit they deserve. That's why I don't care that much about what people think."
Chris Jericho might be making his WWE return at the Royal Rumble. Rumors sparked when it was discovered that the former undisputed champion was booked for special appearances in Pittsburgh the day before the pay per view.
"I don't really have the itch. I'm super busy with all the stuff I'm doing, between Fozzy tours, we're getting ready to record a new record, the podcast, "But I'm Chris Jericho," which is another big hit. I'm also finishing my third book. There's a lot of stuff going on. Having said that, I'd be open to it, but I haven't had any conversations or anything like that. It's WrestleMania. Anybody that's been in WWE wants to be involved. If I'm there, it'll be awesome and I'll do everything I can to have the best match on the show. If I'm not, I'll have a great time watching it, I'm sure."
