The Twitter rivalry between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho has been escalating for weeks and now we know what it’s all been leading up to — a match at Wrestle Kingdom 12.
Following Kenny Omega’s title defense against Trent Baretta at NJPW’s Power Struggle event this morning, a vignette came up featuring Y2J challenging Omega at the January 4 event by saying he’s the true best wrestler in the world.
Omega was fast to accept.
Just yesterday Jericho seemed to tease a match between he and Omega on his upcoming cruise — slated for late October 2018 — but now it seems that was all a ruse.
Watch Chris’ challenge below and sound off in the comments on whether Y2J or The Cleaner will be taking home a victory January 4.
