Jericho is hotter than ever, and his return needs to be booked just right

Can we have a round of applause for Chris Jericho? Not only did he redefine himself in his mid-40s for the best year of his WWE career in 2016-2017, he redefined himself again later the same year, going to NJPW and wrestling the best match of 2018, thus far.

Jericho is now a red-hot commodity. One may argue that he always was, right from the time he made his WWE debut in a segment with The Rock, during the height of the Monday Night Wars. While that may be true, he currently seems unstoppable and absolutely bulletproof!

WWE has the opportunity to capitalize on this momentum and make Jericho's return feel special. In this list, we shall discuss 5 ways they can do so!

As always, your comments are welcome...

#5 Temporary member of The Shield

Could Jericho step in as a replacement for Ambrose?

The Shield reunited ahead of TLC, and the WWE Universe was all for the alliance. Unfortunately, a spate of ill fortune afflicted members of the trio, with Roman Reigns first suffering from a viral infection and missing the Hounds' comeback, and then, with Dean Ambrose suffering an elbow injury.

At present, The Shield has formed a makeshift alliance with Jason Jordan, but Jordan is not 'over' with the WWE Universe at all. We'll tell you who is over though: Chris Jericho.

Jericho could serve as the makeshift Shield member for a short while, considering Ambrose has been ruled out of action for nine whole months now. Jericho reinvents his persona like a chameleon, and we can totally imagine him rocking the riot gear with true panache.

He would also have a valid reason to attack The Club, as a member of The Shield. This is because Balor, Gallows and Anderson are cohorts of Kenny Omega's ilk from across the Pacific Ocean. The Shield and The Club would be a fantastic feud indeed. One with a good reason, to boot!
