Several people in WWE are talking more and more about Chris Jericho leaving the company when his contract expires in September. Word is that Jericho asked officials for permission to try and become the host of ABC's Downfall game show and was given the OK. When Jericho was hired for the show, apparently Vince McMahon got mad and nobody can really explain why.

Jericho was on somewhat of a losing streak lately and was given less promo time. He was the only top star missing from RAW two weeks ago where the RAW Superstars stood up against the NXT Rookies. Jericho has since been put into a program with Evan Bourne and all seems well at this point. It's not like they're going to punish one of their top stars for months on end.
