The current IWGP Intercontinental Champion has become quite the marketable item in 2018. His epic clash with Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 drew a ton of extra eyes on the New Japan product, and even greatly increased PPV buys/streams on New Japan World. Jericho would return to face Tetsuya Naito at this past summer’s Dominion, proving that he has the desire to work outside of the WWE for much longer than a one-off. Rumors have been swirling around that the Ayatollah of Rock’N’Rolla may even make an appearance on IMPACT wrestling now that Don Callis, a fellow Canadian and close friend of Y2J, is head of talent relations.
Now the man himself has posted a tweet that leaves any and all doors wide open.
2019 is gonna be an interesting year…. #FreeAgentJericho
