So, yeah, I was playing on my phone, when a notification goes off. I find out, Kenny Omega’s little twitter war against Chris Jericho is going to the ring. Seriously. It was announced at New Japan Pro Wrestling Power Struggle, where Omega successfully retain the IWGP United States Championship against Trent Baretta (Yes, I am referring him to that), that Jericho is challenging Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12. It’s been a while for Jericho, since the last time he was in New Japan was 20 years ago, wrestling as the mask wrestler, Super Liger, nemesis to Jushin Thunder Liger, but the gimmick was drop after poor criticism and after that, Jericho wrestled as himself, before returning to World Championship Wrestling, six months after.
Why is this different for Chris Jericho? Well, he is in the best shape of his life, he is on tour with his band, Fozzy, and he has not any plans to return to WWE at anytime soon. So, yeah, Jericho has no contract with WWE. Jericho has a long wrestling career and his promo, he is consider the alpha of pro wrestling and also mention names like Edge, Shawn Michaels, and yes, even CM Punk. Apparently, he has support for this, including WWE Diva, Sasha Banks.
But, what is Jericho facing is not an ordinary man, but, a man who is amazing for what he does. Kenny Omega is not just a Canadian wrestler, who was being goofy or kissing guys for fun on shows. No, Kenny Omega is the man, the (4th) leader of the Bullet Club, the IWGP United States Champion, and all of that, he still enjoys video games. Kenny has wrestle in the United States too, including PWG and Ring of Honor. Not to mention that he, The Young Bucks, Marty Scurll, Cody Rhodes, and Adam Page have merchandise sold world wide with Pro Wrestling Tees and Hot Topic. In fact, Kenny Omega is also in the best shape of his life.
A lot of people could discriminate against both men due to their past, which looking at the cup half empty and what I see is two men at their finest who want to make an uproar to kick off 2018, which it is looking at the cup half full. Jericho is crazy, but so is Omega. I like both men, but, the line is drawn and if I am forced to take sides, I would be on Kenny Omega, because he’s the best and I really like him. No offense to Jericho, but, he’s on the road with his band, Fozzy. Sure this match is titled Alpha vs. Omega, but, in the end, Omega will triumph. Not just because I am a female saying that because he’s hottie, but, he has better in-ring skills and I don’t know if Jericho has some ring rust.
