He wrote on Twitter, "For the first time in 8 weeks I dont have dance rehearsals. What am I going to do with myself now? Anythin goin on in Tampa this weekend...?"
Jim Ross, who is competing at the event, asked Jericho, "Ever been in a Country Whippin Match? I need a coach or a stunt double. Interested?"
He replied, "No but I have been in a barb wire match, a penalty box match and everything in between. I'll do it! Plus I even have my own Stetson."
For what it's worth, almost everyone expects Jericho back in WWE in the near future. Chris did an interview several weeks ago where he basically confirmed he'd be returning once Dancing with the Stars was over. It's possible he may be tied down with the show until everyone is eliminated which means he may not be able to return to WWE just yet.
-- Jim Ross, who injured his hand during his match against Michael Cole on RAW, posted the following update today on his official website (JRSBARBQ.com): "My hand is swollen and sore and I can't make a fist...yet."
He is expected to compete in his match on Sunday.
