Austin got a free pass for selling out, and Jericho gets a free pass everytime he leaves and slaps his fans in the face then comes crawling back to lose cause hes Bored
For a start, Austin didnt leave completely. He came back once in a while. At least once a year
2nd, he didnt exactly leave by choice. His last major match happened right after a heart attack and soon after, his body had enough, one more match and he could have been crippled. Look at all the surgery he's had done
Rock left from 2004 to 2011 by choice, and in that time cut two promos on WWE TV and one HOF promo. Neither in person
So yeah, not the same situation
That being said, who cares. None of them owe us anything. If they wanna leave, their choice
