Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho Take It Old School for WrestleKingdom 12

As we head into WrestleKingdom 12, the once thought of dream match between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho reached another level this past weekend.

Chris Jericho at the WrestleKingdom 12 press conferenceAfter winning a six man tag match at the World Tag League event, Jericho attacked Omega busting him open with the U.S. Championship.

The following day at a press conference for WrestleKingdom 12, Omega attacked Jericho by surprise but was hit by a flying table thrown by Jericho. Afterwards, Jericho proclaimed this would be Omega’s last match in New Japan.

There’s a ton to speculate on here from Jericho’s words but we also should look at the smart booking here. Deciding to make this match a brawl, and old school brawl, instead of attempting to match or top Omega’s usual “Five Star” performances of the past year is a brilliant move by the promotion.
