Chris Jericho to wrestle at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 14

AEW World champion Chris Jericho is returning to New Japan Pro Wrestling for a match at Wrestle Kingdom 14 on January 5, 2020.

Jericho, in his Painmaker makeup and attire, showed up via video at the Power Struggle show after a match between Tanahashi and Ibushi vs Okada and Yoshi-Hashi and challenged Tanahashi to a match at WK 14, telling him that this would be Tanahashi’s last match. The challenge was immediately accepted by Tanahashi.

Despite being an AEW employee, Jericho has a clause in the contract where he could do dates for New Japan Pro Wrestling. He last wrestled for NJPW in June of this year at the Dominion show where he lost to Okada.

Wrestle Kingdom 14 will take place on January 4 and January 5, 2020 at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan.
