Jericho has been denying a WWE return, which means that this could be another return accidentally leaked. It of course could be just a mistake as well. Jericho is known for playing the internet fans.
According to WWE sources, that story was a mistake and they are asking the newspaper to run a correction. Of course, this could be WWE’s way of trying to cover their mistake as they want to keep things a secret similar to what they wanted to do with Batista.
