If WWE were to have their way, Chris Jericho would be back with them. That’s what was hinted at on Chris Jericho’s Twitter account.
A fan on Twitter said the following: “Need a Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn & Chris Jericho faction. Make it happen Y2J!!!” Jericho then replied, “Hmmm…well Some higher ups want that to happen sooner than later! #tampering”
The tweet seems to imply that WWE reached out about getting him back. Jericho is still under contract with AEW. Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that there were multiple people who WWE reached out to.
During the talent meeting held by Tony Khan on Wednesday before Dynamite, Khan alluded to the tampering issue and he said that AEW’s legal department sent a warning letter to WWE’s Nick Khan.
