Well, look who is on the guest list for Raw 25. A mere weeks after wrestling Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12, WWE officially announced on Raw that Chris Jericho will appear at Raw 25 next Monday night (Jan. 22).

This is likely just a one-off as Y2J is still going to work New Japan’s Strong Style Evolved show in Long Beach, California against Tetsuya Naito in March!
Chris Jericho was last seen on WWE television in late July where he inserted himself into a triple threat match with Kevin Owens and AJ Styles on SmackDown Live.
Sir Mitch’s Take: I wonder if WWE’s production truck will mute out any New Japan inspired crowd chants next week!
