When asked by a fan through social media if he would be in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 32 this year, Chris Jericho flat out stated that there was no chance in hell of that happening. The belief is that the former world heavyweight champion wants a regular match on the main card, preferably with someone younger and newer that he can put over. Jericho has a decent amount of backstage clout with WWE officials.

Even though he has been out of the company for several years now, WWE fans are still clamoring for Shane McMahon. It should come as no surprise that he is leading in votes on a poll that asks who Chris Jericho should interview next on his podcast show.

During a recent interview, Chris Jericho listed Seth Rollins as one of the guys in WWE that he would love to work a program with. The belief is that management is actually interested in that idea because they need an established veteran to help put over Rollins before he cashes in the Money in the Bank briefcase. A potential match between the two at Wrestlemania seems like a very likely idea at this point, but a lot can change from now until then.
