Add Chris Jericho to the list of those who will be departing WWE temporarily soon.

Jericho's recent stay in the company was scheduled originally to end last fall, but due to how much fun he was having with his role with Kevin Owens, he delayed it and kept the program going, saving the first match for WrestleMania.

It appears Jericho will remain with the company for a few weeks after WrestleMania, but will be touring with his band Fozzy from 5/5 to 5/27.

It appears this will be a short-term departure as Jericho has been pulled from all May shows, but is being advertised for shows in June.

Jericho's Fozzy schedule is listed as:

  • 5/5 in Virginia Beach, VA at Lunatic Luau
  • 5/6 in Canton, GA at The Revival
  • 5/7 in Charlotte at the Carolina Rebellion
  • 5/9 in Knoxville at The Concourse at The International
  • 5/10 in Louisville, KY at Trixie's Entertainment Complex
  • 5/12 in Ashwaubenon, WI at the Green Bay Distillery
  • 5/14 in Somerset, WI at Northern Invasion
  • 5/16 in Pittsburgh at the Diesel Club Lounge
  • 5/17 in Lancaster, PA at the Chameleon Club
  • 5/18 in Patchogue, NY at 89 North Music Venue
  • 5/19 in Asbury Park, NJ at the House of Independents
  • 5/20 in Winchester, VA at Blue Fox Billiards
  • 5/23 in Flint, MI at The Machine Shop
  • 5/24 in Joliet, IL at The Forge
  • 5/26 in Pyror, OK at Rocklahoma
  • 5/27 in San Antonio at the River City Rockfest
  • 6/11 in Donington, UK at the Download Festival
