It's interesting now to hear that Chris Jericho is headed to NJPW for Wrestle Kingdom... I am guessing he really was on a short term or handshake deal or that contract has quietly expired. He's someone who helps to "trim" the wage bill as if he's in Japan, he doesn't likely get the retainer they were paying him to be exclusive... which was probably what a lower level talent was making like Summer Rae.
Still seeing someone else going before the end of November... I think some people might get jobbed out in the run up to Survivor Series and then let go.
