Chris JerichoChris Jericho did an interview with iconvsicon.com and revealed when he would be done with his current WWE run.

"I came back to the WWE and as of August 14, 2012, when "Sin and Bones" comes out, we go on the road with the Uproar Tour. At that time, I am done with the WWE and it is full-time with Fozzy until the album cycle and touring is done," he states during an interview promoting the album."

This of course is five days before SummerSlam which WWE is advertising Jericho to be at.

Jericho went on to say in the interview that his top priority is the band and he wants it to be as successful as he was able to make his wrestling career.

"Like I said, this is something I have been doing since I was 12 years old. It is part of who I am. I think I am very fortunate to have had two dreams that have come true, both of them in these very big ways. Fozzy is slowly catching up to where I am wrestling-wise," Jericho states. "If I were to retire tomorrow, I would be very happy with all the things we have done as a band. We have worked really hard to get here and have all the pieces of the puzzle there and ready – it has been a whirlwind! I want to continue to build on those achievements!"
