Chris Jericho: New Japan Is Breathing Down The Neck Of WWE

IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho has said that New Japan Pro Wrestling is hot on the heels of WWE, as the Japanese promotion continues to grow.

In an interview with the Winnipeg Free Press, Jericho said how the company is "slowly but surely" increasing in popularity internationally. 

He said: "It's a Japanese wrestling company, the top stars are Japanese, but there we were, two foreigners, headlining and main eventing the Tokyo Dome. It would be like two Japanese football teams in the Super Bowl. The fact it’s two guys from Winnipeg is a really huge deal.”

Jericho captured the IWGP Intercontinental Championship at Dominion earlier this month, defeating Tetsuya Naito.
