How big of an arena could this match have stateside?


I feel like we are getting robbed over here and New Japan did something amazing.  Am I just a over informed wrestling fan or could there be a draw here?

I doubt it. With some build, yes. But on Jan 4, 2018? No. Omega isn't that well known here.

I doubt it would sell out a major arena here. But an ROH show would sell out overnight.

I wonder how he worked this out with Vince. He leaves all the time and comes back and never wrestles for another company.


I think this will be great for both guys. Jericho can have a great high quality match which he probably can’t in the WWE with their restrictive style at this stage of his careeer. And Kenny can have a match with a big name from the states.

The biggest draw right now is Brock vs Jinder Mahal. The two most legit champions in one ring and WWE is really close to signing that match.

I would be lying to you if I said that I wasn't hoping for Mahal to win that match. It would be awesome.


Jericho may be on a mission from Vince to sign Omega. I think Omega's contract runs out at the end of January. This may be setting up Omega's move to WWE.

Fatty may be on to something about Jericho wanting Kenny in WWE. Though Kenny was part of that Raw Invasion from a few weeks back that got Jimmy Jacobs fired.


Kenny is a perfect fit for the WWE cartoon character environment.


It's also looking like Jericho was the "Switchblade" gimmick they've been teasing for months

If they want to bridge the gap between bullet club and wwe, Kenny is the key. He can help get the Young Bucks signed, and cut into the Hot Topic merchandise.


I don’t know if they’d want to be with the wwe right now as they are very successful without them. Maybe for the future though. Kenny has said his dream is to main event Mania against AJ.

I'd give my child for that

For the record, Switchblade is Jay White, which is a whole other story
