The preliminary plan for the cryptic "itbegins2012" video that aired on Monday's Raw Supershow is to re-debut Chris Jericho, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.
Jericho has not agreed to a new contract but he and his agent Barry Bloom have been working closely with WWE about a new deal. Jericho's recent Tweets and comments appear to be that of a smoke screen to throw fans off in attempt to make his return a surprise.
January 2, 2012 will be Raw Supershow from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee.
It should be noted while this is the preliminary plan, Internet leaks have been known to change such plans. For example, the cryptic video used this year to bring back The Undertaker was almost used for Sting because of Internet speculation. WWE tried to get Sting to appear at Wrestlemania XXVII earlier this year but a deal could not be reached.
