NJPW Wants Chris Jericho vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 01/08/19


In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio (via Wrestlezone), Dave Meltzer said that NJPW wants to get Chris Jericho back for a match with Hiroshi Tanahashi, but Jericho’s contract expired after Wrestle Kingdom 13.

He said: “They really want Chris Jericho. I know Chris Jericho’s deal expired with the Tokyo Dome, but in the dressing room he challenged Hiroshi Tanahashi, and they do want to do that match this year (Tanahashi and Jericho) and Jericho does want to stay, it’s just a question of getting a new deal done. Everything that was happening last night changed last night again. So, there we are. I’m sure it’s going to be changing a lot.”
