The upcoming Wrestle Kingdom match between Chris Jericho and Tetsuya Naito was kicked up a notch at a pre-event press conference — as it will now be no-DQ affair.

It all went down on Thursday during the Fan Festa event. During the segment, Jericho said that a normal match between he and Naito would no longer be enough.

“Here’s my challenge to you,” the WWE legend stated. “Jericho vs. Naito 2 at the Tokyo Dome, I want it to be a no-disqualification match.” 

Y2J continued to demand the stipulation as Naito played cool, but the LIJ wrestler ultimately granted the request of his opponent.

… then Chris beat him up and powerbombed his rival through a table.
