Chris Jericho could return to the WWE ring as early as next month, according to a story from PWInsider.

The website is today reporting that the 47-year-old, who last appeared for the company at Raw's 25th anniversary show, could feature in the upcoming 50-man 'Greatest Royal Rumble'. This event is to be held in Saudi Arabia on April 27, in conjunction with a 10-year partnership with the country.

The news follows corresponding reports that Y2J, having competed at Wrestle Kingdom 12 back in January, will not be making any further appearances for NJPW. The Canadian reluctantly revealed to Twitter followers last week that he was now "done" with the promotion.

Despite this, his diary unfortunately remains fully booked up until at least April 8, owing to touring commitments with band Fozzy, of which he is the lead singer. Unless he masters time travel, it seems unlikely, therefore, that he will feature at WrestleMania 34 on the same day.

The report goes onto caution that an appearance alongside the likes of Triple H, John Cena and (potentially) The Undertaker in Jeddah needn't necessarily signal a permanent return to the company either. It could yet turn out to be a one-night-only deal, mirroring his brief turn on SmackDown back in July, when he competed in a triple threat match for the US Title.
