Will Chris Jericho appear at Night of Champions?
According to PWInsider.com, Jericho flew into Houston today and is backstage for Night of Champions at the Toyota Center tonight.
While it’s not yet confirmed as to whether or not Jericho will appear during the telecast, this may be a sign that WWE has plans to use him at some point in the night.
The identity of Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose’s mystery partner for their six-man tag team match tonight against The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, and Braun Strowman) has yet to be revealed, leaving the possibility of Jericho joining their cause and competing in the squared circle very much open.
The last time WWE fans saw Jericho was overseas for the “Beast in the East” WWE Network special when he defeated Neville in a one-on-one bout. He’s also worked a series of non-televised bouts at several Live Events, which he ultimately prefers to do at this stage of his career.
In a recent interview with Huff Post Live, Jericho noted how he wanted to work with the former Shield members in Ambrose, Reigns, and Seth Rollins in an on-air feud.
