Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega Happening at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12

Chris Jericho Challenges Kenny Omega For The IWGP United States Title At WrestleKingdom 12

Given that he can do whatever he wants because he's not under contract, Jericho chose to challenge Kenny Omega over the weekend, and now he's set to face Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 at the Tokyo Dome in January. The WWE remains the biggest promotion (for good reason), but they have been feeling threatened by outside forces, such as NJPW and the Bullet Club.

Kenny Omega had just finished defending his IWGP U.S. title against Trent Barreta at Power Struggle when a surprise appearance flashed on the screen from none other than Chris Jericho. Chris Jericho than appeared to issue a challenge for "The Cleaner", which Omega accepted.

The shocking injury that nearly left Cazorla without a foot
The Arsenal midfielder hasn't played a match in over a year, and almost had his foot amputated after he suffered from gangrene and a blood infection.

His Thoughts on WWE Talent: "WWE, in general - you can quote me on this I don't care - everyone there is so below me". Some people were tricked into thinking the rivalry was real as Jericho kept saying Omega was overrated. Instead, Jericho, who has a close relationship with the WWE and chairman Vince McMahon, will have a match with Omega at NJPW's most important show of the year. Pop Culture reported back in January that Jericho had signed a new WWE contract that kept him around through WrestleMania 33, so perhaps he's been working on a show by show basis with them ever since. Jericho has appeared in a WWE ring every year since 2007 but has been a part-time performer with the company as of late while he focuses on his entertainment career, which includes serving as the lead singer of rock band Fozzy.
