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.

    Wow. Didn’t think he’d ever wrestle anywhere but the WWE — because it’s what he said. But I’m super excited about this!

    • Jericho has a history in both NJPW and CMLL, and he booked an ROH show for his cruise next year. Could be that he’s willing to exploit his free agent status and confident that Vince will keep booking him anyway.

        Oh yeah I know his history and I’m psyched for this match. Just surprised because he said he’d never work for anyone but Vince. Glad he changed his mind for this dream match.
