Jericho announced that on June 9 he’ll be challenging Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP World title in a first-time ever match.

Okada is going over, but curious on how wild the brawl will be.

I thought this was going to be Jushin "Thunder" Liger as the opponent since Liger is on his retirement tour and Jericho made his NJPW debut vs. Liger. I would like to see a NJPW or AEW match between the two before Liger retires in January. Chris vs. Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP World title is cool too though.

Liger is sorta feuding with Minoru Suzuki in tag matches currently.

okada has run through everyone, so at least this is new. man, jericho is all over the place, and i imagine he will have to beat omega at the AEW ppv so he has momentum going into this.

That’s not a serious match in Japan. Liger has been close to a Pedro Morales-style jobber for years now and Jericho is positioned as a main eventer. American fans would be more excited for it.

PWInsider:

IWGP Heavyweight Championship: Kazuchika Okada defeated Chris Jericho. This was one of the worst IWGP title matches I can remember in quite some time, and the worst main event match Okada has ever had. It was an okay match, but very short of the standard you expect from a main event on a major NJPW show.

Jericho DDT’d Okada on the announce table. Okada went for a cross body over the guardrail, but Jericho caught him with an attempt at a Codebreaker. Jericho was his usual out of control, wild heel, and was getting into it with the ref. This allowed Okada to hit some dropkicks and get back into the match. There were some nice exchanges, with Jericho cutting off some of Okada’s big moves and hitting the lionsault, and locking him into the Walls of Jericho, which Okada battled out of. They both hit Codebreakers for near falls. Okada was starting to build towards the Rainmaker, but after a series of reversals, Okada caught Jericho in a pin and got the three. This felt like they had barely left third gear when it ended.

After the match Jericho blasted Okada with a chair, hit him with the Judas Effect Elbow and then ran Okada into the ring-post with a chair around his neck. Hiroshi Tanahashi, who was on commentary, stood up and got into a pullapart brawl with Jericho to end the show.

As the show went off the air, the crowd booed loudly, which is something I have never seen before to end a major NJPW show.

This match aired on AXS TV tonight. This review is complete bullshit. It was a 25-minute match, first of all. And the match was perfectly fine and the crowd was into it. They booed after the post-match attack because *gasp* Jericho actually knows how to get heat. The crowd never turned on the match as the review implies.

The match wasn't great, nor was it bad. It was bad for an Okada match, but Jericho and his gut are limited these days. Also, Tanahashi needs to take lots of time off because he looks terrible. It's time for the Ace of the Universe to take 6 months to a year off to heal up.

Tana is entered in the G1, so he's not listening to our medical advice.
