During Smackdown 1000 this week, many legends made an appearance as Batista, Ric Flair, Triple H, Undertaker or Edge. However, there was a big one missing at this little party: Chris Jericho. He was present at the 25th anniversary of RAW last January but unfortunately, we did not see him again on Tuesday.
If we could think that the reason for this absence came in large part from the fact that he is currently at the NJPW as IWGP Intercontinental Champion, it would be nothing. The principal concerned spoke on the issue via social networks and his response is as short as surprising.

Obviously, Vince McMahon and the WWE officials did not want to see Chris Jericho at Smackdown 1000 … It’s sad!
