Wrestling legend Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega will finally meet inside the ring at Wrestle Kingdom 12 on Jan. 4, as the two will headline New Japan Pro Wrestling's marquee show.

The promotion shared the news via Twitter:

The two had been going back and forth on social media for weeks, and they had this exchange Saturday, one day before the official announcement:

Omega defended his IWGP United States Championship at Power Struggle, defeating Trent Barreta, before Jericho cut a promo that was shown on the big screen. Calling himself the "best wrestler in the world" and the "alpha," the 46-year-old made his challenge, which the champion immediately accepted.

Jericho also alluded to a potential fight in a tweet he sent out ahead of Omega's match, and the latter promised to elaborate later Sunday:

Jericho hasn't been seen inside the ring since a July appearance at WWE SmackDown Live and hasn't fought outside of WWE since 1999.

Wrestle Kingdom 12 will take place at the iconic Tokyo Dome and will see Kazuchika Okada defend his heavyweight championship against Tetsuya Naito in the main event.

So is this a partnership or is a similar thing to Brock with UFC? Cause im assuming Jerichos still a WWE guy. Either way this is fantastic stuff.

Is this a way to eventually get Kenny Omega in WWE?

I think Jericho is a WWE guy but isn't under contract with WWE. I'm sure he talked to Vince and Triple H about this. Jericho is as company as company gets

Him and Omega have been insulting each other on Twitter for a while (Reddit has been orgasmic over it) so I'm not surprised, they're probably gonna have a match with it all being a work.

Going to be amazing to see Jericho go off the rails a little bit more due to be having to work with the style of WWE.

Yeah im expecting an awesome match but not MOTY caliber cause yes Jericho is older. However i am excited to see what he can do outside of WWE limits as far as his moveset goes. Really hoping to see the Lion Tamer again.

Would help if you quoted the post you were referring too. Otherwise what you are saying right now literally doesnt mean anything and is nonsense.

The same card also has Naito vs. Okada and (probably) Tanahashi vs. Ibushi on it though
