It was a busy weekend for Chris Jericho who put in a surprise appearance at ALL IN and still found time to make a gig with his band Fozzy.
At ALL IN, held at the Sears Center in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday (Sept 1), Jericho showed up to lay a beatdown on his rival Kenny Omega.
Omega, who is the current IWGP Heavyweight champion, had just emerged triumphant from a match against Pentagon Jr. when the lights in the arena went out. When they came back on, Pentagon Jr. attacked Omega once more.
However, it was not really Pentagon Jr., but someone dressed as him. And that someone was current IWGP Intercontinental champion, Chris Jericho.
After laying Omega out with a Code Breaker, Jericho grabbed a mic and told Omega that he would see him at the Jericho cruise.
Apparently the beat down on Omega was part of a scheme for Jericho to promote his Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager at Sea. The cruise will be setting sail from Miami to the Bahamas from October 27-31. It will feature live bands and wrestling matches.
Currently Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, and Johnny Impact are set to wrestle during the cruise and, if what happened on ALL IN is an indication, Omega and Jericho might be taking their renewed rivalry to the sea as well.
While many wrestlers would consider a sneak attack during a show they weren’t supposed to be a part of a full weekend already, that wasn’t enough for Jericho. Right after the attack, he hopped on a private plane to make a Fozzy gig in Merriam, Kansas.
