WATCH: Chris Jericho attacked EVIL at NJPW King Of Pro Wrestling

Chris Jericho returned to New Japan Pro Wrestling in an angle where he attacked EVIL during his entrance.

The entrance consisted of druids ahead of EVIL’s match with Zack Sabre, Jr. and Jericho revealed himself as one of them. In a nutshell, Jericho pulled EVIL off the ring apron so he could attack him and then give him a code breaker in the ring. He also nailed EVIL with the Intercontinental Championship before taunting him and leaving through he crowd.

EVIL’s match with Sabre, Jr. was ruled a no contest because EVIL was unable to wrestle. Sabre, Jr. attacked EVIL before Naito ran down to make the save.

This is clearly an angle to set up Jericho’s first title defense as IWGP Intercontinental Champion.
