Chris Jericho appears to have creative control while working under New Japan Pro Wrestling.
While answering questions on Twitter, F4WOnline‘s Dave Meltzer was asked about Chris Jericho drawing blood on Naito when he recently attacked him at the NJPW Wrestling Dontaku event. Meltzer mentioned that while blood is not allowed, Jericho can do anything he wants — indicating that he have some pull in what goes on in his segments.
@davemeltzerWON do they blade in NJPW?
