Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega has been announced for New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 event on January 4, 2018 in Tokyo, Japan at the Tokyo Dome. A video featuring Jericho issuing the challenge aired on the NJPW Power Struggle event. Jericho and Omega had a recent Twitter feud to set up the match.
