• Chris Jericho Says Vince McMahon Is Super Excited For His Match With Kenny Omega, Says Naito Is A Stupid Idiot If He Thinks Naito vs. Okada Match Is Responsible For Increase In Wrestle Kingdom 12 Ticket Sales
During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho talked about Vince McMahon’s reaction to his upcoming match with Kenny Omega, Naito saying there’s only one main event for Wrestle Kingdom 12 and that is IWGP Heavyweight Championship match against Kazuchika Okada & more. Below are the highlights:
On Naito saying there’s only one main event for NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12:
“It kind of shows how stupid he is because yes, it is a double main event and if he really believes the Tokyo Dome ticket sales are two-and-a-half times greater than they were last year at this same time, if he truly believes that’s because of him and Okada, then he’s a real stupid idiot, there’s no doubt about it. And if I went there and I said, ‘Oh, for sure it’s Omega vs. Jericho, it’s Alpha vs. Omega, through the roof is the main event,’ I’d be a stupid idiot, but I’m smart, I understand how the business works. You’ve got the two guys that are two of the greatest performers in the world, the match that nobody thought would happen, that’s the main event.
Then you’ve got the world title match of Okada vs. Naito, the two Japanese guys fighting over New Japan’s most prestigious title, that’s the main event. It is a double main event, that’s why the tickets are selling so well, because it’s a one-two punch.
For Naito to say that shows that he’s an idiot, because if he was smart he would admit that it’s a double main event and say how huge it is and put more money in his pocket. But you know what? I’ll save that money for me and he can go back to doing ‘Tranquilito’ or ‘Despacito’ or whatever the hell it is he’s doing.”
On Vince McMahon’s reaction to the announcement of his match with Omega:
“I know he wasn’t upset because I called him six weeks before and told him as soon as the deal was done. I would never surprise him like that. I didn’t ask him for his permission, but I didn’t have to.
I told him what was going on and to be quite frank with you guys, he was super excited about it… Obviously, his mission is to seek and destroy and kill every other company, but I think he secretly likes it when other companies do good, because it just makes it better for his company.
And when Chris Jericho goes to New Japan, everyone knows I’m not a New Japan guy, I’m a WWE guy.”
