– Regarding plans for Chris Jericho at WrestleMania, Vince McMahon continues to keep them very close to his vest, so no one really knows at this point except perhaps his inner circle. They’ve tossed around various scenarios for what is planned for Jericho, but they are changed regularly.
One scenario discussed last week was for Jericho to face a series of legends at “The 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania,” culminating with The Wrestler star Mickey Rourke coming out and delivering a knockout punch.
Another idea thrown out was for Jericho to wrestle someone, although that person has yet to be disclosed. Additionally, the legends featured on television in recent weeks including Ric Flair, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka and Ricky “The Dragon Steamboat, as well as Mickey Rourke, would sit in the front row and get involved towards the end of the match. While they haven’t been featured on television during the angle, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine and Honky Tonk Man will likely sit amongst the legends too.
Flair has talked about not wanting to be perceived as “just another legend” in the crowd, but he still plans on being involved with the storyline.
