Jericho wasn't hidden at Raw on Monday afternoon and was actually spotted walking around backstage by several people. He's under a new part-time contract, believed to be similar to the deal Rob Van Dam worked under in his first stint back last year, a 90-day contractual agreement. Bringing Jericho back involved certainties from both sides. One, WWE wanted to bring Jericho back to help offset recent losses at the top of the card. They've been hot on him since CM Punk walked out in January, however, Jericho wouldn't return without a firm creative plan. The beginning of that plan appears to be a program with Bray Wyatt, hence the beat down that immediately proceeded his return. Jericho, like many WWE veterans, is high up on Bray and even worked him down in NXT last year. It was a bout that Jericho himself requested. Jericho Tweeted the following after his return to WWE:
