Chris Jericho recently said he’s going to end Tetsuya Naito’s career at Wrestle Kingdom 13, but in a new video message the LIJ leader claims the opposite.
Naito dropped a new subtitled promo in which he compliments Jericho for hyping their upcoming match by appearing at the latest press conference, then attacking him in Korakuen Hall.
“You, a self-proclaimed superstar, Mr. Chris Jericho, even said you would retire me at Wrestle Kingdom 13 in Tokyo Dome,” Naito said with a funny look on his face. “While I’m looking forward to my match with you at Tokyo Dome, I have just one thing I want to remind you of. Please don’t wear that lame makeup, because it’s going to be the last match of your career.”
Wrestle Kingdom 13 takes place January 4 on FITE TV and NJPW World.
