Update On Chris Jericho Working For NJPW

Chris Jericho does not appear to be done with NJPW despite signing with AEW recently.

Chris Jericho is likely not finished with New Japan Pro Wrestling. Despite signing with AEW recently, the 48-year-old has consistently suggested he has unfinished business left in Japan. According to a report from Wrestling Observer Radio, Jericho is expected to continue his working relationship with the company.

“He has not signed with New Japan but he’s talked with Gedo,” Meltzer said. “Obviously, they’ve had a meeting of the minds and ideas for this year. His contract allows him to do New Japan. He wants to do New Japan, Gedo wants him.”

Meltzer would continue to say a contract has not yet been signed, however.

“We happened to have a Fozzy gig in Jacksonville, FL around that same time (September 26th). That was when I had a meeting with Tony Khan for four hours and really had a chance to get to know this guy,” Jericho said. “That’s when I realized this guy really wants to do this,” Jericho continued.
