Apparently Hiroshi Tanahashi just made a list. While there is a wild array of speculation that Chris Jericho can join Cody Rhodes and the young bucks in Jacksonville, Florida for the new promotion of All Elite Wrestling, the legendary wrestler has not done with New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
Jericho may have lost the IGF Intercontinental in a potential match of the year for the candidate last night in the Kingdom of Brest 13; however, he completely intends to challenge the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, which is now held by Hiroshi Tanahashi, who defeated Kenny Omega to return to the title.
Jericho told about Yahoo Japan, "I just lost it [Intercontinental Championship] I took it from Naito in June last year. It's a big mistake if you think that the time with me and the New Japanese Pro-Wrestling is over. I want to challenge the heavyweight IWGP belt … Write it down. Chris Jericho will challenge the IWGP heavyweight challenge! You will understand. "
Jericho saw the Renaissance in his career after returning to the New Japan Pro-Wrestling in November last year. He defeated Tetsuya Naito to become an IWG Intercontinental Champion and had 209 years as a ruler, just to lose the Intercontinental Championships on a doubles match in the last tonight bowling Kingdom 13. Tanahashi has yet to face Chris Jericho.
