The WWE has contacted wrestling star Chris Jericho about a potential comeback to the industry.
Rumor is that the WWE contacted Jericho earlier this week about a possible comeback later this year.
Jericho is currently touring with his band Fozzy. He stated that he has made several commitments to other projects -- and doesn't have a timetable on returning to the WWE. He was interviewed by the Mirror and asked if he had any plans to return in the future.
"No time soon, I left last July and I've been working pretty much non-stop since then between Fozzy tours and doing the new Fozzy record and writing another book and doing my podcasts and a web series. There are a lot of projects in the Chris Jericho pantheon as always.
That's not to say that I won't go back but I have no plans as of right now, just because I have so much other stuff going on that I'm enjoying.
We'll see, there's no controversy or animosity it's more of a timing thing; the timing has to be right for me and right for the WWE as well. When it is I'm sure we'll both consider me coming back."
Fozzy is a heavy metal band that was started in 1999 -- and features Jericho as the lead singer. The band consists of Jericho, along with members of the rap metal band Stuck Mojo -- which include Rich Ward and Frank Fontsere.
Jericho was asked about his current relationship with the WWE and if he stays in communication with them by Mirror.
"For relevant reasons. Once in a while you'll shoot texts back and forth with somebody, or if there's some business thing going on, like if they need something signed or a scan for a video game or something like that but it's not like I talk to the WWE every week and give them my thoughts on what's going on with them or they call me and give their opinions on what I've been doing.
It's a business relationship and like everything else when you're gone you're gone and when you're back you're back and if there's anything in-between on a business level or a personal level I'll get in contact with them.
I have a good relationship with the WWE and there's no animosity but it's not like we're calling each other every day finding out what we had for dinner that night."
For now fans will have to settle for highlights of Jericho's previous matches. One of his last highlights can be seen below.
WWE has been hitting a single note ad nauseam by having too many Superstars win by way of cheap distraction finish.
There are a multitude of ways for a match to end, and WWE has too often turned to the same distraction routine. Not only is it an ending that the company has relied on too much, it's one of the least dramatic ways for a fight to end.
It's tiresome, repetitive and shows a lack of creativity one wouldn't think imaginable.

SummerSlam grew by two matches after the July 28 edition of WWE Raw.
Chris Jericho demanded and received a chance to step into a monster's den. Brie Bella had demands of her own, holding battery charges over Stephanie McMahon's head until there was a bout between them at the upcoming pay-per-view in place.
Houston's Toyota Center hosted a show that began on fire and later had filler douse its flames.

With the annual WrestleMania special airing this Saturday night on NBC, Hulk Hogan did a conference call today to promote the broadcast. Being that WrestleMania was the main topic of discussion, the scope of the questions was generally limited to his thoughts on this year's show and his past WrestleMania matches.
With Daniel Bryan out of action and the fact that telling his story would require covering two matches, he's nowhere to be found on the special. His matches ... Source: Bleacher ReportFull article at: Bleacher Report4 days ago, 3:52pm CDT
WWE programming this week has been rather uneven, with its television offerings and the Battleground pay-per-view last weekend all suffering from some distinct highs and lows. However, those highs did produce quite a few excellent matches, certainly more than in your average week.

As part of WWE 2K15, Sting will bring his WCW resume to the video game world, continuing WWE's strange relationship with the company it bought out in 2001.
When it's financially beneficial to do so, WWE will tap into WCW's past. There's money to be made in mining history.
At times, though, Sting's old stomping grounds has served as a punchline.

Kane is dead.
Well, not really, but you know? He has made a career as the (storyline) younger brother of Undertaker, an undead creature of the night who has come to be known almost affectionately as “The Deadman.”
Kane’s feuds with Undertaker over the years have always had a supernatural feel to them. Inferno matches, Buried Alive matches, Casket matches.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
