Things have changed.
Jericho ended up signing for a series of matches with New Japan Pro Wrestling and changed his stance and said he would not appear for any wrestling company in the United States other than the WWE.
Then, things changed again.
At the All-In pay-per-view in Chicago, Chris Jericho showed up unannounced and attacked Kenny Omega before unmasking and making his first non-WWE appearance in the United States in over a decade.
Now, it seems that Jericho is game for anything.
Will Chris Jericho sign with Impact Wrestling?
Chris Jericho released a photograph that got the entire wrestling world talking. He was posing for a photo with Impact Wrestling officials Ed Nordholm, Don Callis and Scott D’Amore (as well as his father, former NHL star Ted Irvine).
There is one very important thing to note here. Chris Jericho and Don Callis are very close friends and have been for many years. That could explain the photograph.
Another thing to note is that it was Callis who convinced Jericho to come to New Japan and convinced New Japan to sign him. Could he have done the same for Impact Wrestling now that he is on the booking team there?
Chris Jericho responds to Impact Wrestling rumors
In an interview with Drew Dalby, Jericho made it clear that no one should never say never.
“Impact, I had a great conversation with them the other day in Toronto,” Jericho said. “There’s some great matches I could have there.”
Jericho also said that he heard Tony Kahn is starting his own company, which is the promotion that Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks seem to be working with. Jericho was also rumored to be involved there as well.
With Jericho basically hinting that he could appear in Impact Wrestling, one wonders if he will ever appear in the WWE again. He will, one day that is for sure.
However, in his interview, Jericho said he will reinvent himself before he returns to the WWE and that “The List” will never return.
