On the most recent edition of Talk is Jericho (transcript via wrestlinginc.com), Chris Jericho spoke about Kenny Omega and their upcoming match at WrestleKingdom 12Ö

On The Match and Facing Kenny Omega: ďObviously, huge news because of the announcement of ĎAlpha vs. Omegaí, Jericho versus Kenny, January 4th [2018] at the Tokyo Dome, New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Yes, I am going to New Japan for the Tokyo Dome to face Kenny Omega in a dream match of all dream matches. Needless to say, itís something that Iíve been working on for a couple of months. Iím very excited about this. Itís the first match that Iíve had outside of the WWE since 1999 and the timing couldnít be better. I mean, Kenny Omega is the best performer in professional wrestling today, the most critically acclaimed, the most buzz, and I came off the greatest run of my career back in 2016, 2017, so I think you really do have best in the world versus best in the world type of situation. But Iíve been saying that Iím the alpha of pro wrestling, by far the greatest of all time, the best in the world, so it is the Alpha versus Omega January 4th at the Tokyo Dome. If youíre not going to be in Japan, you can watch it on New Japan World, which is their live streaming service and we are working on other ways for you to see it as well.Ē

On The Announcement Going as Planned: ďIt [has] definitely caused the whole [pro] wrestling world on its head. Itís the biggest talk of the wrestling world, and, once again, Chris Jericho right in the middle of it. Thatís what I do, baby! The last couple of months, Iíve been working on it. Keeping it a secret from all of you was actually so surprised and happy that it ended up staying a secret. Nobody knew until the match was announced at the end of Kennyís match in Osaka [Japan] the other day, which was in the middle of the night for everybody.Ē

On How Important The Match Is: ďItís going to be one of the biggest matches in [pro] wrestling history happening at the Tokyo Dome. It is a co-headlining main event along with [Kazuchika] Okada and [Tetsuya] Naito, so yep, working on top at the Tokyo Dome. The kidís still [has] got it!Ē
