NJPW breathing down WWE’s neck
In a recent interview with the Winnpeg Free Press, Chris Jericho said New Japan is breathing down WWE’s neck:
“(NJPW) is a company that’s slowly but surely increasing its worldwide popularity and basically breathing down the neck of the WWE. It’s a Japanese wrestling company, the top stars are Japanese, but there we were, two foreigners, headlining and main eventing the Tokyo Dome. It would be like two Japanese football teams in the Super Bowl. The fact it’s two guys from Winnipeg is a really huge deal.”
Jericho is currently the IWGP Intercontinental Champion.
