• Chris Jericho Compares NJPW Star To The Rock & John Cena

During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Old School WWF Legend Chris Jericho (who is now the new IWGP Intercontinental Champion in New Japan Pro Wrestling) talked about NJPW star Tetsuya Naito (who he defeated at Dominion to become champion) and compared him to The Rock and John Cena.

Below is what Jericho said:

“Naito is a legit huge babyface star, think The Rock in 2001 or think John Cena in 2010. A legit superstar that everybody loves and when I attacked him about a month ago, children and women were literally crying. Now we get back to – what I love about wrestling – is a great babyface and a great heel. That’s the difference between me and Kenny Omega, just a fight between two guys. This is more of an old school ‘good guy versus bad guy,’ ‘hometown hero versus evil foreigner,’ which gives me the license to be a little crazier.”

• Original Plan For Money In The Bank 2018 Main Event

According to PWInsider, the Nia Jax vs. Ronda Rousey RAW Women’s Championship match along with the Alexa Bliss cash-in was supposed to be the original main event for the Money In The Bank 2018 PPV, but it got changed to the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match over the weekend.
