Jericho is known for messing with fans online, so this could very well turn out to be false.
Back in January, Jericho noted during an appearance on Busted Open that he’s looking for a Brock Lesnar type deal in NJPW:
“I need to keep the ball rolling, I don’t know, once again, the Naito thing is pretty interesting thing to me, and don’t over-saturate myself. Don’t join the G1 Climax and be just another guy. I really want to do the Brock Lesnar deal with NJPW, if it works out.
Pick my spots and come and go to where you’re like, ‘This guy’s barely there, yet, when he’s there it makes an impact.’ And that might have to be the incentive, I just have to reevaluate and see what I want to do next wrestling wise.”
