Chris Jericho Update: Status For The Rumble, WM28 Opponent
As we’ve been reporting in recent weeks, the cryptic “It Begins” promos that have been airing on RAW are building up to the WWE return of Chris Jericho.
Despite Jericho vehemently denying that he’s the man behind “It Begins” – our sources have been strongly pushing the scenario of Chris Jericho making his big return on the January 2nd RAW Supershow from Nashville, Tennessee.
To update this story, the very latest is that Chris Jericho will be wrestling at the Royal Rumble, although it’s unknown at this point whether he’ll have a singles match or be part of the 30-man battle royal.
This is where things get interesting. Looking past the Rumble, WWE currently has Chris Jericho penciled in for a WWE Championship match against CM Punk at WrestleMania.
While a lot can change between now and April, the seeds have already been planted for a Jericho vs. Punk feud. The two have been taking shots at each other on Twitter for months, with Jericho claiming stars such as Punk stealing his moves & ideas – and Punk poking fun at Jericho’s stint on Dancing with the Stars.
Hit up the comments below and tell us what you think about a CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho match at WrestleMania.

“I wouldn’t even consider stepping back in the ring for one more match unless @JRsBBQ was calling it. #bestannouncer.”
