Much of the buzz following tonight’s WWE Royal Rumble is the surprise return by Chris Jericho and whether or not this is a one-time appearance or if he’ll be hanging around for a little while. Jericho entered the Rumble at #2 and picked up right where he left off with his feud against Dolph Ziggler.   Jericho defeated Ziggler at SummerSlam last year, but than lost to Ziggler the next night on RAW in a match that held the stipulation that Jericho be fired if he lost the match.  Jericho has been gone from the WWE ever since. Until tonight. WWE.com caught up with Chris Jericho backstage after the show and posted the following video.  Dolph Ziggler interrupts it shortly after and taunts Jericho.  We’re not sure if we’re reading into the line much or not, but Jericho makes reference that when he lost that match on RAW to Ziggler, that it simply said he was to be “fired, not retired” and that Vince McMahon had a change of heart tonight.  He then says “so you got me fired, but now I’m re-hired.”  He closes out the interview by insulting Ziggler and saying “I guess I’ll see you when I see you, pretty boy.”  He taps Ziggler on the cheek and walks away. You can watch the video HERE.
