In the last few months there has been a growing speculation that Chris Jericho could be on his way out of the WWE. All of this has centered around his band Fozzy releasing another album next year. In light of that, Wrestling Inc. is reporting that Jericho is set to go on tour with his band starting right after WrestleMania 33.
Chris Jericho’s band Fozzy will be touring the summer festival circuit following Wrestlemania 33, starting with Welcome to Rockville in late April of 2017. They have also been announced for Rocklahoma and Carolina Rebellion in May of 2017.
As noted, Fozzy signed a new record deal with Century Media this past October and will be recording a new album. Jericho’s next book, No Is a Four-letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life, is scheduled to release in August of 2017.
What this signals more than anything is that Jericho will at least be on an extended hiatus from the business with his band on tour. Remember, he had stated several months ago that he had only thought he was going four more months after the 2016 Royal Rumble. However, Jericho has continued to go on a month-by-month basis following that period.
This could likely mean that the 46-year-old will only be wrestling up to WrestleMania 33. That could entail much change in his storyline in the next few months leading up to the event. Ultimately, there will be much more information to come about his future with the WWE over the next few weeks.
