If you watched Chris Jericho vs. Testuya Natio at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Wrestling Kingdom 13 then you saw a brutal match.
The match was so brutal that Jericho ended up with some nasty welts on his body due to some vicious looking cane shots from Naito. Check out the pics posted from his Instagram account:
Jericho also noted that a whole patch of his hair was lost during the match and it apparently happened when he took a piledriver while outside of the ring because his hair got caught on the ramp when he turned to take the move.
So, what is next for Jericho? He has stated that he is gunning for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship. He is the hottest free agent in wrestling so who knows where he’ll end up. Madison Square Garden for the G1 Supercard sounds like a good idea. There’s also a good chance he’ll end up in WWE or perhaps he would consider signing with All Elite Wrestling. 2019 is going to be an interesting year and a fun one for Jericho fans.
