This kind of talk has the potential to be absolutely nothing but a red herring to generate clicks on the youtube channel... or alternatively to be the biggest news story since the formation of the nWo. 

I'm guessing Jericho is just doing this as a one off match, but if he starts working a number of dates then that could be huge. It's quite noteworthy just that he's doing the one match as he hasn't worked anywhere other than the WWE in a very long time.

If WWE were surprised to find out about his match with Omega, and he did get major heat backstage for it, then it's very possible to see more from Jericho in NJPW.

The news stories revolving around WWE vs Bullet Club/RoH/NJPW have been by far the most interesting stories going on all year IMO.

I really hope guys like Neville, Austin Aries, Emma, Jericho, and upcoming releases like Hideo Itami, Dolph Ziggler & Daniel Bryan (and lets be honest, sooner or later Paige) all join up with RoH/NJPW as soon as they are able. This is the kind of thing the entire industry very badly needs, and pooling all talent resources into one group will go a long way towards giving fans the WCW-level of quality alternative that everyone wants.

I think it'll be more than just a one shot deal given he wants them to work his Rock n Wrestling Cruise or whatever it's being called.

Quote From Jim Ross Website

Just my take but how any of us can complain about Jericho vs Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January of 2018 is a head scratcher. It was excellent booking and creative and the two Winnipeg natives will rock the Tokyo Dome and sell tickets. This is the best way for them to monetize this window of opportunity without question. It's been a long time since the Dome went clean on January 4 and this match should certainly help regarding that matter. I read where the NJPW goals  was to sell 30,000 for WK12 which is a tremendous number but  the Dome's capacity for baseball is 55,000 and obviously a bit more for wrestling.
I'm looking forward to calling this match on AXSTV a few days after it originally airs. 

Wish he would say why it's a head scratcher. Only reason I can think is because he's disapointed it's not happening in E.

How many they get in the venue is going to be interesting. Might be too much to expect it to sell out.

I don't believe that E didn't know about it until it was online. Chris himself said he went to them with an idea that got knocked back.

It'll be a fun match. New Japan's plan with Jericho vs Omega is to increase NJPW World subscriptions opposed to sell tickets. Naito vs Okada is a white hot match in Japan and New Japan's main ticket paying fanbase is still from its own country. 

It's shaping up to be an interesting card, Road to the Tokyo Dome has two shows Monday and Tuesday. I'm expecting the 6 man titles to change hands this Monday, so Fale and GOD will win those. 

That'll be another title match on the card. Really looking forward to WK12, will hopefully go next year to WK13. :)

So now it appears Jericho is going to be facing Naito in March, and even possibly a match with Okada after that.

It really gets me wondering how long this 'temporary' stint with New Japan is actually going to last.

Usually "foreigners" get a years stint...so really wouldn't shock me to see him there for a year then heading back to WWE for his swansong.

I haven't been following NJPW lately but apparently last night Jericho became the first guy to ever win both the WWE and IWGP Intercontinental Championships.

Just another feather in his cap and a great way to make sure he always stays ahead of The Miz. No way The Miz ever does this.

He has also reinvented himself once again adopting a little face paint and a sort of goth version of his former character.
