Brian Fritz of AOL Fanhouse is featuring an interview with former WWE star Chris Jericho discussing his new book in detail and his decision to leave WWE for a second time.

"When I came back in 2007, I signed a three-year deal. And I knew at the time that when the deal was up I'd be 39 years old, almost ready to turn 40, and I would just play it by ear at that point. The WWE schedule is very grueling. It's very difficult. I'm going to be one of those guys that has an easier deal I'd guess you'd say. And there's nothing wrong with the guys that do have that. I'm either in or I'm out. And at the end of September when my deal expired, we had a lot of stuff coming up with Fozzy. We did seven countries in seven weeks since I left the WWE from the beginning of October until the middle of November. So, I just wanted to concentrate on that. It's the same thing when my wrestling career started to pick up speed, you got to ride the wave. And it's the same thing with Fozzy. The band is picking up speed and there's a lot of opportunities. You got to ride the wave to make that happen. It was time to switch over to that and work on the band. I also knew that the book was coming out and there was a big tour for that. So, there were a lot of things. And things change too.

At one point I was going to go back and other things came up. Am I gone from the WWE forever? Who knows. Am I going back? Who knows. I really don't have any plans either way. And the door is wide open. I laugh when I get asked 'were you future endeavored?' That's the furthest thing from the truth. It was just my deal was up and I moved on to some other things. I still talk to Vince (McMahon) quite often. I watch the show very intently to see how they're doing. Like I said, the company will do just fine without Chris Jericho. It's done just fine without The Rock. It's done just fine without Steve Austin. It's a good time for some of those younger guys to pick up their socks and make their mark because they have to."

Oh boy, looks like we've found ourself something that will probably spawn a thousand individual threads and eventually force the site into making a sticky thread about the issue. Y'know like when Daniel Bryan coming to WWE was all the rage. Yeah, something like that :3

But thats just me...

Always great to see what Jericho has to say about about his current status with WWE and where his interests are currently at. Thanks for posting.

I think Jericho will be back next year once he is able to ride out his book tour, work on some more stuff with Fozzy and spend some time at home with his family. By that time he could have the itch again to get back in the ring. I like how he made reference to how working with Fozzy or his book is no different than his wrestling career in that he needs to fully commit to the endeavor to make sure it succeeds.

I would love to see Jericho back, no doubt. But I also respect his decision, so if he decides to not come back, I'm okay with it. He's still a sure hall of famer.

I'm super excited for his new book. A Lion's Tale is one of my favourite books of all time. Jericho is hilarious, and Undisputed has been pre-ordered. Its the best selling wrestling book on Amazon at the moment, and it hasn't even been released yet.
