The wrestling internet community has been hyping this match to death for a long while and I’ve been wanting to watch, but didn’t know how I would watch the match live ’cause this is a Japanese ppv event. This a Japanese wrestling company called NJPW and they have their yearly “Wrestle Kingdom” shows which is like Japan’s version of WrestleMania sort of. Well Chris Jericho was booked for a United Stated championship match against Kenny Omega @ Wrestle Kingdom 12 which just happened today. I think the ppv event happened earlier this morning ’cause it would be night in Japan… keep in mind Japan is on the other side of the world so the Time Zones are gonna be different obviously.
I saw the match Omega vs. Jericho and I’m like “Wow, what a freakin’ match”! I bet this match got Vince McMahon a bit jealous ’cause this match was 100% true wrestling. This is the kind of match you’ll never see in WWE. When I watched this match with Omega vs. Jericho, I definitely did not feel like watching a match that is for children. This match has all the things you’ll never see in a WWE ring: chair shots to the head, blood, flipping the middle finger, etc. In this match, Jericho is the heel and Omega is the baby face. I thought both men did a great job and this match will go down as a classic.
I’ve been a fan of Chris Jericho for years and my loyalty to him never stopped. Jericho does a good job playing both the heel and the baby face, but in this match Jericho’s heel character is different than WWE. One thing I like about Chris Jericho, he’s always great at changing his wrestling gimmicks over the years. Jericho has always been a phenomenal performer but this match was the best I’ve seen him in.
Take note, Vince McMahon. This is what wrestling fans want to see. It’s a good thing Japan knows what true wrestling is all about. This match was thrilling and exciting all the way through.
Will WWE sign Kenny Omega after this match? Who knows, anything is possible now.
