Chris Jericho has commented on potentially working the upcoming G1 Supercard event that is being co-promoted by Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling at Madison Square Garden in New York City next year during WrestleMania 35 weekend.

The IWGP Intercontinental Champion recently spoke with Dave LaGreca and WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray on a recent edition of Busted Open Radio on SiriusXM. This is where he gave his take on this possibility.

“If there’s a match that’s presented to me that’s interesting and if I’m free…why not? I’m really kind of enjoying this free agency. And realizing why do I have to keep it in NJPW. I’m not really worried about what other people think.” He would add, “In the first time of my career, I’m completely in control. I’m really enjoying not having to run my ideas through a committee of one or two people.”

Jericho has made a few appearances for WWE this year, including a backstage segment at the RAW 25th Anniversary special in January. He last wrestled in a WWE ring at the Greatest Royal Rumble back in April.

Outside of WWE, Jericho made several appearances for New Japan Pro Wrestling, including a 5-star classic against Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom from the Tokyo Dome. At Dominion, he captured the IWGP Intercontinental Championship from Tetsuya Naito.

Jericho made a surprise appearance at ALL IN by attacking Omega after his match with Pentagon Jr. to promote the Chris Jericho’s cruise, the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager, that sails from Miami on October 27th.
