Chris Jericho Will Offer Hiroshi Tanahashi an AEW World Title Shot if He Wins at Wrestle Kingdom 14

Chris Jericho has responded to recent comments made by his upcoming Wrestle Kingdom opponent, New Japan Pro-Wrestling “Ace” Hiroshi Tanahashi. Y2J claims that if he actually loses to Tanahashi in their bout, then he vows to give him a shot at the AEW World Championship.

For what it’s worth, a better translation of what Tanahashi actually said in the interview was that if he defeated Chris Jericho at the Tokyo Dome, and Jericho were then to return to New Japan for another match, it would make sense that he receive a title opportunity.

Nevertheless, this certainly adds an interesting element to The Ace and The Painmaker’s highly anticipated marquee match on night two of Wrestle Kingdom 14, taking place on January 5th streaming live on NJPW World.
