Chris Jericho is notorious for spreading fake stories when it comes to April Fools day, for example last year he told fans he shaved his head and even shared a picture of him with no hair, which ended up not being true. So this year wouldn’t be any different.
He posted the following pic on his Instagram earlier today revealing that he “tore up” his ankle while training and that WWE doctors have said his match tomorrow against Kevin Owens would be off. To be fair, Jericho hasn’t revealed yet if this is a true or not, but it’s highly suspicious and “well timed.”
UPDATE: As a side note, this picture Jericho posted is actually the first picture that shows up if you google “bruised ankle.” So it appears his match is still on… dam you Jericho. LOL
See his post below:
As noted, Jericho is expected to begin touring with his band Fozzy following WrestleMania and will be taking time away from WWE.
Kenny King went to Twitter and tweeted out that he is retiring from Pro-Wrestling. This would be considered big news, if i wasn’t on April Fools!
NICE TRY KENNY!
– WWE has used a John Cena vs. Randy Orton match for this year’s April Fools’ joke, you can see it below. See if you can spot the issues.
– Smith Hart also played an April Fools’ joke on fans by commenting on his Facebook post, many believe him. He wrote:
“I’m happy to announce I will be moving to Orlando to accept a position as a trainer within NXT to teach an emphasis on tag team wrestling. I’d like to thank my brother Bret for recommending me and believing in me. I’d like to thank Triple H and the McMahon family for allowing me this opportunity. I’d also like to thank my long time friend Pat Patterson for loosening Vince up during the negotiations. The future is now”
Reports have surfaced that CM Punk has finally gotten in touch with WWE and may be returning after WrestleMania.
Negotiations are between Vince McMahon and Punk himself, considering Triple H still feels disrespected at his actions and walking out on their match-up. Nothing has been finalized but as it stands right now it appears to be a good sign that CM Punk is returning back to the ring after WrestleMania.
Now for all of you out there who believe this story, APRIL FOOLS!!
