There Is No Room For Chris Jericho In WrestleMania XXX

One possible reason Chris Jericho is not wrestling this year is because the WWE has no room for him at WrestleMania XXX. It’s being reported that Jericho was set to return to the WWE in early 2014, but has decided not to. Ever since Jericho’s band Fozzy has gotten more famous, he usually comes back to the WWE in the first half of the year before leaving to concentrate on the band again.

This year however, it appears as if Jericho will be taking the whole year off. The main reason he’s unwilling to come back this year is because he’s a bit upset with the storylines that the WWE has for him leading up to WrestleMania XXX.

Last year, the Rock and Brock Lesnar were at WrestleMania 29 and the Jericho was in a mid-card match against Fandango. Fandango winning over Jericho was supposed to lead to a huge push, but this never happened. Jericho’s loss to Fandango last year seemed like a waste of time because of that.

In all honesty, I don’t blame the WWE for not being able to fit Jericho in a proper storyline this year. The WWE has tons of talent on the roster right now, and I don’t see how Jericho could fit into the card. Batista is back full-time now, and the likes of Lesnar and Undertaker are due to return too. There’s also Sheamus, who has just returned from injury, and new stars like the Wyatt Family and the Shield will have a place on the card too.

I’m kind of sad that Jericho won’t be a part of WrestleMania XXX, but I understand the WWE’s decision. Hopefully he’ll be back for WrestleMania 31, although it’s rumored that Sting and Rock will be a part of that show next year …
