Chris Jericho could return to NJPW
During the conversation, Jericho spoke about NJPW and revealed that he is considering a potential return to the promotion in near future.
Jericho’s most recent appearance was at last year’s Wrestle Kingdom where he emerged victorious against Hiroshi Tanahashi.
Jericho expressed his desire to have handful of matches in NJPW and added that he wanted it with Kenny Omega as his tag partner.
Here’s what Jericho had to say:
“There’s a lot of unfinished business for me in New Japan,” Jericho said. “Jay White is one [potential opponent], [Minoru] Suzuki is another one that would draw big money. Kota Ibushi and [Will] Ospreay — those four guys I’d love to work with. I’d love to do a ‘Golden Jets’ team — Kenny and Jericho — versus [Kazuchika] Okada and Ibushi or [Hiroshi] Tanahashi and Okada or Tanahashi and Ibushi.
“I think that’s a Tokyo Dome main event right there. So there’s a lot of stuff I’d still like to do in New Japan and as soon as we can start going over there again, I’m more than agreeable to doing more work there. I really enjoyed the six matches that I had there in 2018 and 2019 and think there’s plenty of room for more.”
Chris Jericho will lead his stable Inner Circle to square off against The Pinnacle in a Stadium Stampede Match at this Sunday’s AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view.
