The ever-evolving (and just downright sneaky) Chris Jericho strikes again!
The IWGP Intercontinental Champion made a surprise appearance at tonight’s NJPW King of Pro-Wrestling event and attacked EVIL during his entrance. EVIL had a number of masked druids carrying him to the ring, but Jericho (as a druid) ended up going after EVIL once he got to the ring.
Jericho hit a codebreaker in the ring, then unmasked for the crowd. He hit EVIL with the title, taunted him a bit while holding his IWGP Intercontinental Championship, and then headed out through the crowd.
The scheduled contest between EVIL and Zack Sabre Jr. never started because EVIL wasn’t able to wrestle. Sabre ended up attacking him a bit anyways before LIJ stablemate Naito came out to make the save.
