Chris Jericho revealed in an interview with Metro.co.uk that he plans to leave WWE sometime in May of this year. Jericho extended his stay with the company last year following what has arguably been some of his best work.
Jericho noted that his reasons for leaving are to focus on his band Fozzy which he can't focus on whilst also working for WWE.
“It’s time to get back into Fozzy and there are a couple of other projects I’ve got going on because I don’t do WWE part-time, I do it full-time. I come and go, but when I’m working there I’m definitely a full-timer. There will be no wrestling from May, you don’t do both at the same time. I’ve had a great year which has gone way longer than it was supposed to. It was only supposed to be four months, then it got extended to eight, then 12 and 16. Wrestling will go on hold for a while which is the way I’ve been doing it since 2010.”
