I think I’ll have to buy New Japan World and watch this year’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 live. Former WWE champion Chris Jericho has challenged Kenny Omega to a IWGP U.S. title match. This is coming off the heels of weeks where the two have traded jabs on Twitter.
I saw a couple of folks asking why Jericho and Omega had to feud on Twitter in the build up to this match as opposed to just coming out and saying they’re wrestling on Jan. 4. Pro wrestling is a work and you need to build up interest and sometimes a good way to do that is to trash talk.
I’m exciting for this match up. Omega is hands down one of the best wrestlers on the planet and Jericho always delivers. This is going to be a solid edition to what I think will be a great Wrestle Kingdom 12.
