As we mentioned earlier today, New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced several matches for its upcoming Wrestling Kingdom 13 pay-per-view. The show will go down from the Tokyo Dome on January 4th in Tokyo, Japan. One of the matches recently announced is an IWGP Intercontinental Championship title defense between Chris Jericho and Tetsuya Naito. Jericho had previously said that he had no interest in rematching Naito, however, NJPW seems to have other ideas.
Jericho recently took to Twitter to comment on the match’s announcement:
