Chris Jericho Announces He's Signed A New Deal With WWE

After making a surprise appearance at Saturday night’s WWE live event in Montgomery, Alabama, Chris Jericho revealed on Twitter that he’s signed a new deal with WWE that will have him working 16 shows for the company through March.

Jericho tweeted on Sunday afternoon:

It’s worth noting that all of the dates are weekend shows and none of the dates are Monday or Tuesday TV tapings.

During a recent interview with Slam.Canoe.Ca, Jericho talked about his decision to only work non-televised shows:

“[To do only live events] was my choice. I had some time off [between Fozzy tours], and I thought it would be fun to go back [on that schedule]. It’s like I’m the anti-Brock Lesnar.”

In his return to the ring last night, Jericho defeated Luke Harper in a singles match via pinfall after hitting the Codebreaker.
