Chris Jericho vs Kenny Omega booked for NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 12

At NJPW's Power Struggle pay per view, Omega successfully defended his IWGP United States Championship against Beretta, and then promptly asked for challengers.

However, with Jericho involved with WWE and Omega at New Japan, a match seemed unlikely.

Following his successful championship defence, Omega cut a promo daring anyone to come out and challenge him to a title match.

In a 40-minute opening set, Sevastova was forced to dig into her bag of tricks just to keep in touch with her soaring opponent. Open champion Sloane Stephens also retired from her match.

The match has been accepted by Omega and is official!

This will mark the first time that Jericho, the first ever undisputed WWE Champion and the man who beat both The Rock and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin on the same night as he likes to brag about, will wrestle for a major promotion that is not the WWE in 18 years when he was with WCW.

Wrestling fans thought Jericho vs. Omega would have happened in October 2018 during a special cruise ship event staged by Jericho himself. It will be an 2 week trip in the United States for most.

Sessions says that his answers were truthful because his meetings with Kislyak weren't specifically about the campaign. Al Franken, D-Minn., that he had no communications with Russian officials during the campaign.

Wrestle Kingdom 11 was insane a year ago thanks to the ground-breaking match between Kazuchika Okada and Omega, but with matches like Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito and Omega-Jericho on the card, WK12 could be just as bold of a statement from NJPW to the rest of the professional wrestling world. Jericho, by the way, is allowed to wrestle in NJPW, because he is technically a free agent and not a full-time contractor with the WWE at this stage of his career. Maybe Jericho wants to face some new people since he's already wrestled most of the people in the WWE. This also brings Jericho's contract and status with WWE in question and how he'd be able to pull off something like this.

Jericho stated that he is still the best in the world and the "Alpha" in the wrestling business.

The only match that can rival Omega vs. Jericho is if WWE books AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura at WrestleMania 34.
