Big Update: HBK & Y2J Returning To WWE?
By Ryan Clark | September 04, 2007Source: PWTorch.com
With the recent suspensions and injuries of several top WWE wrestlers, the company is in need of more star power. Two names that WWE is hoping to bring back this fall are Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho. However, neither man has officially agreed to a return date.
Shawn Michaels underwent knee surgery on May 23rd and was originally expected to return by the end of summer. Those plans are currently on hold - as Shawn Michaels has informed WWE that he is in no rush to return. He is considering taking an extended break from the road and then returning at a later time with a lighter schedule. WWE is in a completely different place than it was when Michaels was injured - with the Benoit family tragedy and the Congressional investigation.
WWE continues to have interest in a Chris Jericho return. It is unclear how close the two parties are to striking a deal, but there is ongoing contact.
Both Michaels and Jericho would be tremendous assets to the company at this point. They are two of the best workers in the world. More importantly - they have "athletic" body types (not Batista or Lashley bodybuilder bodies) and live relatively "clean" lifestyles compared to the rest of the roster.
Chris Jericho Update, Batista, Mysterio, MVP, More

Publisher's Weekly wrote the following about Chris Jericho's upcoming autobiography, "A Lion's Tale": "This funny, insightful and compulsively readable autobiography by professional wrestling superstar Lion Heart Jericho matches fellow wrestler Mick Foley's bestselling Have a Nice Day! Jericho reached international stardom after joining the media juggernaut World Wrestling Entertainment (formerly WWF) in 1999, but this book neglects his many accomplishments since then, such as his legendary same-night defeat of wrestling powerhouses the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin to become the WWE's first undisputed heavyweight champion. Instead, Jericho recounts the fascinating story of his early yearsâ€”in effect, a short history of world wrestling trends since 1960â€”from his brutal early training in his native Canada through finally being invited to join the WWE. Jericho ignores or glosses over controversial topics like steroid use, preferring to keep things light and cheery. His hilarious and detailed descriptions of his many bouts, especially his 1995 calling card match in Japan before 10,000 fans, will leave readers hoping for a sequel."
Batista and Rey Mysterio vs. Great Khali and MVP is being advertised for the upcoming WWE SmackDown/ECW tapings in Minnesota on October 9th.
