Details On How Chris Jericho Vs. Kenny Omega Went Down

Here is the latest on the Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega match that was recently announced for NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 12 pay-per-view event.

In case you didn't know.

. At this time, there was a working agreement between the two companies. Jericho was a masked character called Super Liger who would feud with wrestling legend Jushin Thunder Liger. Jericho apparently got the idea for the match based on the build-up for UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather.

Jericho wanted to have a match that no one expected that they would ever see. His request was denied, which led to him contacting Ring of Honor talent.

Jericho approached Don Callis (color commentator for the English broadcast of New Japan Pro Wrestling) about wanting a match with Omega, and Callis then talked to Omega. The negotiations took place over the course of several weeks before a deal was eventually agreed upon.

Regarding how Vince McMahon felt about Jericho competing for New Japan, PWInsider reports that the feeling in WWE is that he did not "bat an eye" about the decision, and Triple H is most likely the one more affected by the scheduled WK 12 match.

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.

Jericho and Omega built up the match announcement after some verbal exchanges on social media.

It just adds to the excitement for Wrestle Kingdom 12; which already has an awesome card.
