Chris Jericho's showdown with Kenny Omega at January's Wrestle Kingdom 12 will mark the first time that he has competed outside the WWE banner since 1999. The WWE remains the biggest promotion (for good reason), but they have been feeling threatened by outside forces, such as NJPW and the Bullet Club.

Kenny Omega and Jericho have been going back and forth on Twitter for weeks now, and most fans seemed to assume that they were building up a potential match for Chris Jericho's cruise next year since The Young Bucks and Marty Scurll have already been confirmed for the trip.

Omega successfully defended his IWGP United States Championship against Trent Barreta at the Power Struggle show this weekend and after the match, a video aired where Jericho claimed to be the Alpha of the business.

But right now, all the conversation is focused on Jericho's shocking announcement and match with NJPW, which nobody foresaw coming.

His Thoughts on WWE Talent: "WWE, in general - you can quote me on this I don't care - everyone there is so below me". Jericho did work with WWE after his contract expired on a handshake basis, appearing on SmackDown Live to continue his storyline with Kevin Owens with the WWE's United States Title. Some people were tricked into thinking the rivalry was real as Jericho kept saying Omega was overrated.

Chris Jericho has arguably had the best aggregate body of work of any pro wrestler in the last 20 years.
