Backstage News On Chris Jericho's WWE Return

Is he actually sticking around until WrestleMania 32?

Chris Jericho's surprise return at last night's Night Of Champions PPV as the mystery partner to Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, isn't expected to be a one-off appearance. According to Bryan Alvarez on today's Wrestling Observer Live show, Jericho is expected to be a regular on WWE programming all the way through to WrestleMania 32, including working January's Royal Rumble PPV. It's expected that Y2J will be present on WWE RAW tonight and that he could pick-up the story from where it was left off on Sunday's show with the tension between Jericho, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose brewing over after losing to the Wyatt family in a six man tag. The long term plan for the feud is for Jericho to turn fully-fledged heel. Jericho had been working the live events circuit periodically for WWE in 2015 and was also on the card for the WWE Network special from Japan, Beast From The East, a few months back. He is also scheduled to appear on October's Madison Square Garden WWE live event (October 3rd) where he will be honoured for his 25th anniversary in the wrestling business. He's expected to wrestle Kevin Owens at the show.
