Best in the World!

On January 4th, 2018, Chris Jericho made his long-awaited return to New Japan Pro Wrestling with an unbelievable match against Kenny Omega. And in one of WWE's busiest months of the year, New Japan Pro Wrestling will also figure to make its imprint with its version of WrestleMania. 

Many stories shocked and awed this past week, but they start and end with Alpha vs Omega. The leader of the 'Bullet Club' vs the 'Ayatollah of Rock & Rolla'! It was also the battle of Winnipeg, with both athletes being raised in that part of Canada.

Last year, Chris Jericho once again got the wrestling world abuzz with his surprise appearance in New Japan Pro Wrestling, and once again, he exceeded expectations with a wild, hardcore brawl against Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12. 

Jericho's long-awaited "Alpha vs. Omega" showdown with the best wrestler in the world, who isn't currently employed by WWE, was an instant classic. The match featured an incensed, heel Jericho at his villainous best. Jericho repeatedly mocked Omega chants, attacked both referee "Red Shoes" Unno and his son, and turned the American broadcast booth upside down in a departure from the traditional style of Japanese wrestling. An unbelieveable match.

If that wasn't enough to dominate headlines for the week, Jericho stuck around and attacked Tetsuya Naito, who headlined Wrestle Kingdom 12 in a losing effort to Kazuchika Okada, the following night at New Year's Dash. 

Chris Jericho never fails to impress, and he officially crowned the victorious Kenny Omega as the best wrestler in the world!
