New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) wrestler Kenny Omega, and current IWGP United States Champion, accepted a challenge from wrestling superstar Chris Jericho for Omega’s championship. Their match will headline New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 on January 4, 2018 from the Tokyo Dome.
While it does not appear that Chris Jericho remains on contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), it does appear like he still has a good relationship with the company.
To that end, WWE Board Chairman Vincent Kennedy McMahon took to twitter to wish Jericho a happy birthday today.
Good to have friends in high places.
Chris Jericho aka Christopher Keith Irvine was born on November 9, 1970 and is 47 years old today.
Happy birthday to the Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla.
