Chris Jericho's band Fozzy will be touring the summer festival circuit following Wrestlemania 33, starting with Welcome to Rockville in late April of 2017. They have also been announced for Rocklahoma and Carolina Rebellion in May of 2017.
Jericho's latest WWE run started at the 2016 Royal Rumble this past January, and he admitted to The LAW in a recent interview that it was orignally only supposed to last four months.
"I have a very close working relationship with Vince McMahon and neither one of us expected this," Jericho said. "Both of us would like to sit back and think we were the be all, end all wise oracles that predicted this. I will tell you this, my original plan when I came back last January was to stay until WrestleMania, four months. Then, it started going so good, I re-signed I think until July and then I re-signed until October and then I re-signed until November.
"Now it's basically a month by month thing. I've got a certain time frame in mind but I can't even say that because what was supposed to be four has already been ten because I am smart enough to know this. I've been doing this for a long time and to have - like you said, this could be my best run, I still think my 2008 Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, Big Show might have been better but if it was, it's not by far. This could be the best run I've ever had and at 45 years old, ten years ago, you would think that was old. Now, the Stones are still killing it at 74 years old so as long as physically I can go and still basically look the part, I don't really put any limits on age or anything like that. I can still go out there and have the best match of the show on any given night and I'm working with guys that are 10-15 years younger that don't feel that."
