Chris Jericho recently stated via Twitter that he won’t be at WrestleMania 29 in six months from tomorrow (Sunday). He replied to a fan’s Twitter post and said, “Sorry won’t be there. But have fun!” You can read the full exchange on his Twitter account @IAmJericho.
Jericho left WWE in August to tour full-time with his band Fozzy. He has a history of sending mixed signals that may disguise a return. As we’ve been reporting though, current indications are that Jericho has not been able to agree to a new contract with WWE to return again. He may also be busy touring which would prevent a WrestleMania appearance.
We reported last week that WWE officials had been negotiating with Chris Jericho on a new contract in recent weeks, but talks fell through. WWE opted to cease talks with the wrestler/musician in recent days.
It is believed that the proposed deal fell through due to control over when he worked as well as his activities outside of WWE. Officials were seeking a deal where the company would be his top priority and they would have some control over his outside endeavors. Jericho, on the other hand, wanted complete control of all of his activities.
Jericho was open to returning as early as this month had WWE agreed to his terms. He was looking to work forty to fifty dates per year, including full-time for cycles and even assisting the developmental program. However, he would determine the periods when he worked and would be strictly unavailable during tours, which WWE was not in favor of.
