Looks like Chris Jericho will work in the United States outside WWE after all.
At ALL IN tonight (Sept. 1) at the Sears Centre in Chicago, Illinois, Jericho laid a post match beatdown on his former rival Kenny Omega.
The IWGP champion Omega just survived a brutal match with Pentagon Jr. After the match, which he won with the One Winged Angel, the lights went out. When they came back on, Pentagon Jr. attacked Omega.
But it wasn’t Pentagon! It was Jericho wearing a Pentagon mask!
He delivered a Code Breaker, grabbed a microphone, and said “See you on the Jericho cruise!”
That’s right, this isn’t even a New Japan angle (where Chris Jericho is their Intercontinental champion); it’s to promote his cruise, where they’ve already booked a match with Jericho & The Young Bucks against Cody & Kenny & Marty Scurll.
It’s all very Chris Jericho.
On his way out, he knocked down Don Callis by shoving the commentary table. Callis is an executive Vice President of Impact, who loves to tease they know Jericho. With Jericho working shows in the U.S., his future is wide open.
