Chris Jericho’s Dominion match against Naito was very violent and Jericho won the IWGP Intercontinental Championship in the process.

Dave Meltzer discussed Y2J’s new persona in New Japan during Wrestling Observer Radio and it looks like this won’t be the last time we see a brand new Jericho.

“Chris Jericho looked like a completely different person you know Chris Jericho is doing the thing now like Don Frye where every time he comes to Japan he changes his look. So he had like stars on his eyes and different hair and different clothes and he just looked like this punk rock madman. Nothing like the Chris Jericho in WWE and wrestled nothing like the Jericho in WWE other than he did a couple Lionsaults and a Lion Tamer and some of his trademark moves, Codebreaker and all that.”

“But as far as this was just totally changed and I think if you’re only going to do a couple matches a year you can really pull that off it’s really a great thing because when you come people anticipate because they’re going to see something different. I mean it’s hard because you have to be creative to do it.”

Jericho isn’t the same in New Japan as he destroyed Naito and walked out with his 10th IC Title from 2 different companies. But now that he’s a champion he has to come back but only time will tell what kind of Jericho shows up next time.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
