Chris Jericho, Itami Comment On Jericho Return, Updated Schedule

Chris Jericho's latest tour leg with rock band Fozzy is coming to a close, and he's set for somewhat of a WWE return.

Jericho will face NXT star Hideo Itami on June 30 at a WWE live event in Tokyo. While there's no word on a potential television return, Jericho is now on WWE's Smackdown Live brand.

Soooo stoked for this... @hideoitami #wwetokyo #Ryogoku @wwe (graphic by @wrestlingparty) #june30

An interesting coincidence seems to be that Fozzy's next tour will take place in October and November in Europe. During that period WWE will also be touring the continent. Several key Smackdown dates don't match up to where Jericho could make it, however.

Hideo Itami also commented on the upcoming matchup, which you can see below.
