Chris Jericho Reveals When He’s Leaving WWE, Discusses His Future And More
Chris Jericho revealed during an interview with IconVision that he will be finishing up his WWE commitments on August 14th, days before WWE SummerSlam, to go on tour and promote his new album, “Sin and Bones.” Jericho said he would be doing Fozzy full-time through the tour and album cycle.
“Yeah, it has been since ‘Chasing The Grail’ came out in 2010,” said Jericho. “That was the point when we decided that we had something really special here and we could really do something with this and it became time to put all of our effort and focus into the band. I was gone from the WWE for a year-and-a-half when ‘Grail’ came out. During that time, we toured 16 countries and built up a really good fan base everywhere. When it came time to make ‘Sin and Bones,’ I knew I would have about six months of free time. I came back to the WWE and as of August 14, 2012, when ‘Sin and Bones’ comes out, we go on the road with the Uproar Tour. At that time, I am done with the WWE and it is full-time with Fozzy until the album cycle and touring is done. Like I said, this is something I have been doing since I was 12 years old — it is part of who I am. I think I am very fortunate to have had two dreams that have come true, both of them in these very big ways. Fozzy is slowly catching up to where I am wrestling-wise. If I were to retire tomorrow, I would be very happy with all the things we have done as a band. We have worked really hard to get here and have all the pieces of the puzzle there and ready — it has been a whirlwind! I want to continue to build on those achievements!”
Jericho also talked about how he was going to start writing a third autobiography when he goes on the Rockstar Energy Drunk Uproar Festival tour, Fozzy’s upcoming album “Sin And Bones,” as well as touring with the band, his musical influences and more. You can read the full interview here.
