    Chris Jericho~! showed up via video package to challenge Kenny Omega to a Wrestle Kingdom match on Jan 4th 2018. Jericho finally did a vignette tease that nobody thought was him. There's been a lot of twitter back and forth between them, but I don't think anyone expected something like this so soon. Long beach or the Jericho cruise was my what I was expecting.

    Obviously that puts the rumoured Ibushi/Omega match on the backburner, but I'm stunned that this match is happening. I assume Jericho is still under WWE contract atm?

    I think my NJPW viewing might start with the Dome show in January tbh.

    I think the whole ‘under contract’ thing was laid to rest once he started promoting ROH for his cruise as well as a few things here and there. He’s given hints at total free agency so this doesn’t feel completely out of left field.

    Still a giant announcement and adds some excitement to New Japan’s big show. Already stated my opinions though in the Power Struggle thread.

    I thought this match would happen at the cruise based of jericho's tweet but this is even better. The entire wrestling world, even wwe fans who are just wwe fans were talking about the omega vs jerich twitter exchanges. Well done, huge surprise and great build.

    I wouldn’t call building a feud through Twitter “good build” but they certainly have more to actually play with now that Jericho’s doing actual promos

    I would say it was a good way of building to the match with Jericho not actually able to appear.

    Re: Huge Surprise At NJPW Power Struggle

    I don't think spoiler tags are really necessary, I only did it so the picture didn't take up the whole screen.

    This news confirms to me 2018 is going to be a very interesting year in wrestling, particularly New Japan/WWE stuff. New Japan also announced their coming back to the US for a tour 2 weeks before Wrestlemania. Jericho's now working for New Japan and in a program with Bullet Club's leader no less, we know Neville has asked for his WWE release so I expect to see him there at some point, and I'm on record of saying ROH/NJPW is Danielson's plan once he's left WWE.

    Ahhh Okay



    It's a shame that we won't get Ibushi vs Omega, been waiting for that for a long time but this more the makes up for it. It helps build New Japan and Omega as a star towards the US and casuals viewers which is a plus. Omega vs Ibushi will probably happen at those Long Beach shows in march.


    Obviously Jericho's currently not in a WWE contract since I doubt WWE would let him do this.

    Ibushi/Omega not in Japan would be such a misfire.

    We all thought 2016 was a strange/interesting year for pro-wrestling. 2018 is quickly going to try to be on that level.

    Well that's some bomb shelling news to see Jericho wants a piece of Omega. I'm just imagining the Match and how it could play it, it's going to lovely get your Popcorn ready.

    Jericho isn't under WWE contract at present, he finished up with WWE back in May. He made a surprise appearance on Smackdown in July, but otherwise he's been gone a while now.

    Huge news though this. Looking forward to seeing hoe it'll unfold.

    I always assumed Jericho was still under a WWE contract that allowed him to come and go when it suited him....The sinister side of me says WWE have given the go ahead here and will get something in exchange....I'm just not sure what.
    I have a plan so cunning......

    I thought for sure it would be on Jericho's Rock and Wrestling cruise next year but it's sooner than I thought and I'll take it.

    I hope we still get Kota/Kenny eventually.

    Re: Huge Surprise At NJPW Power Struggle

    It works better at Wrestle Kingdom than it does on a cruise ship for obvious. It’s a massive draw, adds to the spectacle of a Dome show, will have a better crowd, and I don’t know if I would be able to endure another year of Jericho/Omega building a feud off of podcasts and tweets.

    Jericho has had some low points but he is certainly the master of misleading and surprising in pro wrestling. Not a lot of people do it better.

    Never really watched any of the NJPW stuff consistently though I take an interest in what's going on and even I seen the vignette and thought the whole thing was pretty cool with the twitter feud, leading to the vignette and match announcement.

    Jericho vs Omega should be, One Sweeeeeetttt!

    Alpha vs Omega damn Y2J is so good at making a feud he's involved the most important, making people take interest right way the guy gets it.
