Following his lost to Tetsuya Naito at Wrestle Kingdom 13, Chris Jericho had one demand … a future IWGP Heavyweight title opportunity.
Jericho spoke with the press after losing the IWGP Intercontinental Championship on Friday night and said it’s a “big mistake” if you think his time with NJPW is over.
“I’ve kept the Intercontinental belt for the longest in 2018,” he continued. “So let me tell you, I want to challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight belt, unreasonable or not.”
For those who missed it, Hiroshi Tanahashi once again became the IWGP Heavyweight Champion last night after defeating Kenny Omega in a hard-hitting match.
