Although Chris Jericho had previously claimed that he'd never work a non-WWE show in America out of respect for Vince McMahon, the 47-year-old has now changed his tune.
'Y2J' appeared at ALL IN, where he disguised himself as Pentagon Jr. to ambush Kenny Omega, and now has his sights set on another landmark non-WWE show: Ring Of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling's upcoming G1 Supercard (6 April 2019) at Madison Square Garden.
Per the man himself on a recent episode of Busted Open Radio, Jericho is open to all possibilities as a free agent. He didn't confirm anything, but said there's a chance he'll work the G1 Supercard, provided his schedule allows it.
2018 has seen the former WWE Champion take his career into his own hands. He wrestled Omega at NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January, then took Tetsuya Naito's IWGP Intercontinental Title a few months later. Up next is his Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager cruise (27-31 October), then, surely, a New Japan return.
It's hard to imagine Vince McMahon being best pleased at this, particularly as the G1 Supercard takes place over WrestleMania weekend, though his control over Jericho is now non-existent.
A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
