Chris Jericho, who has been off WWE television since the Smackdown following the Payback pay-per-view, returned to the ring last night as he is currently on tour with the Raw brand in the Far East.
Jericho wrestled Hideo Itami last night at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore, the first leg of the tour. He will also be part of tomorrow’s and Saturday’s non-televised live events in Tokyo, Japan. Both shows will be held at the Ryogoku Kokugikan Hall.
Since WWE will be in Tokyo, the company took Itami and NXT Women’s champion Asuka on the tour as well. Japan favorites Finn Balor, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows are also part of the tour.
There’s no fixed date for Jericho’s return on WWE television. He had been advertised for this tour prior to his departure in early May.
