Jericho's status with WWE; Update on Apollo name change Submitted by Aaron Rift on 03/01/2018 at 09:48 AM
- Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted the following about Chris Jericho’s status with WWE:
”For those wondering about a Jericho return, I’d doubt it before the end of the summer.”
Meltzer noted that Jericho could return after Wrestlemania through June if Jericho doesn’t participate in NJPW’s Dominion event. Jericho has another Fozzy tour scheduled for July though mid-August in Europe.
- According to Dave Meltzer, it has been confirmed via people that have seen internal emails that the Apollo Crews name change was due to the Parkland, FL shooting. Vince McMahon made the call to drop the Crews name to avoid name association with the alleged gunman Nikolas Cruz. The report about the change had been going around but WWE never confirmed the story and the official reason for the change wasn’t supposed to get out.
