— As noted earlier here on the website, WWE has broken off negotiations with Chris Jericho on a new contract. Jericho had been negotiating with the company for a return and was open to returning as early as this month, but the sticking point came when Jericho wanted to maintain control of his own schedule. Jericho wanted to work forty to fifty dates a year, going full-time at periods and helping out with developmental. However he wanted to determine the periods when he worked and was going to be unavailable during his tours. WWE, on the other hand, wanted to ensure that they would be his top priority and wanted some control over his schedule because of that. The talks have ceased rather recently.
