We all knew the constant barbs Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho have been throwing at each other on twitter was leading up to something. But, we could never have foreseen this happening!
After successfully defending his IWGP U.S. Championship at NJPW Power Struggle, Kenny Omega issued an open challenge to anyone willing to take him on. The lights at the Edion Arena in Osaka then went dark before Chris Jericho appeared on the Tron, accepted his challenge and named the time and place…WrestleKingdom at the Tokyo Dome on January 4th, 2018.

Authors Note: While Jericho technically is not signed to a contract with WWE, it is still shocking to see him announced for another promotion. This is simply put…HUGE!!!
