WWE is looking add more dates with Chris Jericho and are happy with the response he gets on live events and he’s working for less than previous runs. Jericho doesn’t want to commit to television or lengthy angles right now as it gives him more freedom to lineup dates for Fozzy. Whenever he’s not on tour, he’s looking to do as many WWE shows as he can get in order to maximize his income.
Concert promoters have been concerned though about his lengthy absence from WWE television. This is one of the reasons Jericho pushed hard to get a spot on Tough Enough as it adds to his billing as a current television star.
