The Wrestling Observer is reporting that negotiations between WWE and Chris Jericho have broken down in recent weeks. WWE had hope to sign Jericho to a new deal but Jericho was not happy with the control the company wanted over his outside activities. Jericho who is also a musician asked for complete control over his contract, while WWE wanted him to consider wrestling with them his top priority and to have control over his non-wrestling projects. Had WWE agreed to Jericho's terms he would have been open to returning as soon as this month on a contract which had forty to fifty dates per year, including full-time for cycles and even assisting the developmental program. Jericho also wanted to choose when he appeared for WWE including having time off for tour dates with his band Fozzy, WWE was not in favor of this and thus negotiations ended.

They should back off and let him do whatever he pleases outside the company. They need him working with the developmental program.

After his latest run I'm not too excited about him returning. He has been great over the years but not sure if they handicapped him or he has just become stale on his own but this most recent run was disappointing. Phone Post

This. 

 

Those vignettes were solid...

 

then he debuted.... and did nothing comparable to what was said in those vignettes. I was at the Royal Rumble live and me and my buddies were waiting for "the end of the world," and "the key that was "her." ..... never came

I'm a huge Jericho fan and his last run was such a let down. On paper, Punk vs Jericho feud should have been amazing, but it was completely forgettable in the end.

I guess it was knowing the whole time that he was not staying for long.
