Chris Jericho isn’t sure if he’s done with New Japan after Wrestle Kingdom 14

The eyes of the wrestling world will be on Chris Jericho’s match with Hiroshi Tanahashi tomorrow at Wrestle Kingdom 14, for several reasons. It’s a first time ever clash of all-time greats. It will supposedly lead to an AEW title shot for Tanahashi if he wins.

Add “it could be Jericho’s last New Japan match” to the list (pun semi-intended).

The Painmaker told Sports Illustrated there are still a couple guys on the NJPW roster he’d like to face, but he’s not sure he’ll be back:

“I came to work with Omega, Naito, Okada, and Tanahashi.

Will I come back after the Tana match? I don’t know. I’d love to work with Ospreay and Ibushi. It might be mission accomplished after this, it might not, but it’s really cool to go back as a main event heavyweight after being a junior heavyweight.”

When talking about how he evolves his wrestling gimmicks later in the interview, Jericho says:

“If you like something I do, you better enjoy it. When it’s done, it’s done.”

Is his latest run in New Japan one of the things that’s done?

We’ll find out after Sunday’s Tokyo Dome show, I guess.
