Chris JerichoA key WWE insider confirmed with WrestleZone this evening that both Chris Jericho and Mick Foley are expected to return to WWE in some capacity between now and WrestleMania, but neither will be "full time, on the road, weekly characters for more than one storyline." This news comes despite Jericho Tweeting yesterday that he had "no plans" to return to WWE.

According to our key insider, "HHH has taken a very active role in pushing (WWE Chairman) Vince (McMahon) into forgetting about the past arrangements where talent had to be full time. HHH has pushed for certain valuable superstars like Foley and Jericho to be brought back for selective runs leading into big shows like SummerSlam and WrestleMania."

Added our insider, "Vince feels very good about The Rock's part time position, and also Stone Cold Steve Austin's part time position through Tough Enough. The use of those legends has opened Vince's eyes to a new way of doing business."
