Chris Jericho confirms that he is done with New Japan Pro Wrestling

Chris Jericho is a busy man. This year, he has appeared on WWE television, headlined the Tokyo Dome against Kenny Omega, gone on another tour with his band Fozzy, and he is scheduled for the 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia. Did I mention that he continues his weekly podcast?

Jericho was interviewed by Aaron Varble at Still Real To Us to promote his upcoming Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager At Sea. The cruise leaves the port of Miami on October 27th and he promises that it will be a ton of fun for all fans, even non-wrestling fans.

Among several topics, Jericho confirmed that he was done with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Sometimes you have to take what he says with a grain of salt because he has the old school mindset and he likes to surprise fans but here is what he said about NJPW: “Yeah you know it was a good idea. It was good when it happened — we had a blast but sometimes things just don’t work out. You know, so New Japan was a lot of fun… not to say that I wouldn’t go back there again but as of right now our relationship is pretty much finished at this point.”

This backs up what he said last month on Twitter:

So, there you have it straight from the horse’s mouth. The last I heard, The Greatest Royal Rumble appearance is just a one-off deal and there is nothing full-time set for him with WWE.
