With Tetsuya Naito and Chris Jericho set to do battle at Wrestle Kingdom 13, the leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon began cranking up the build.
Naito posted a video mocking the current IWGP Intercontinental Champion as the build intensifies to their championship match at New Japan’s biggest show of the year.
The number one contender mocked Jericho for his recent face paint by having some paint on himself, stating:
“An international superstar wouldn’t put this lame make-up on his face, would he? If he used make-up, he would do it cooler, wouldn’t he?”
Naito then went on to suggest that Jericho has purposely stolen t-shirt ideas to make profits himself, adding that the NJPW locker room doesn’t care about him.
“[…] he wouldn’t rip-off someone else’s t-shirt design to make a little cash,” Naito said. “He wouldn’t do anything that cheap, would he? After all, he’s an international superstar, right? Nobody really talks about you. Is it perhaps the nobody’s really that interested in you? The self-proclaimed international superstar, Mr. Chris Jericho.”
