Kenny Omega, speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine about his upcoming match with Chris Jericho at Wrestle Kingdom match on January 4:
“The way things have been shaping up, it seems like I am the sympathetic character going into a big match for the first time in my career. That wasn’t intended. Chris and I wanted to go into this match with a “no clear good guy” angle. That’s not how things played out. NJPW is somewhat a family friendly promotion but I went to the higher ups and asked for some leeway with Jericho. Blood is not seen a lot in Japan, so when it’s used, it has to mean something. That’s what I set out to do and I think we accomplished it. There’s a lot of intrigue surrounding this match. I want to continue to build it up as much as possible and really pull out all the stops.”

Great decision, imo. The two angles they shot really upped my hype level. Just 21 days away!!
