While on tour in Mexico, Chris Jericho revealed to fans that he was leaving WWE again. The former world heavyweight champion announced that he was taking off for a couple of weeks to do a tour of Europe with his band, Fozzy. As of right now, they have dates scheduled until the beginning of December. More dates could be added. The belief is that Jericho may make his return at the Royal Rumble.

While he has been telling fans that he is only doing live events, this could be another case of Chris Jericho working the internet wrestling community again. The former WWE champion is actually scheduled for an event with Eric Bischoff in Philadelphia on the same day of the Royal Rumble. The venue is just minutes away from the Wells Fargo Center, which means that Jericho would have plenty of time to get to the pay per view.
