2-time World Champion and one of the top Box Office draws in WWE, Chris Jericho will be heading back to New Japan Pro Wrestling to participate in the upcoming Wrestling Dontaku events that are scheduled to take place on May 3 and May 4, 2018. Jericho is reported to appear to lay the foundation stones for a match at the Pay-Per-View event, Dominion which is set to take place on June 9, 2018 at the Osaka-jō Hall.
Jericho participated at this year’s WrestleKingdom 12 where he lost to the former Bullet Club leader, Kenny Omega in a No Disqualification Match. The next night at New Year’s Dash, Chris attacked a victorious Tetsuya Naito and the two went at it. Following that segment, Jericho has largely disappeared from the pro-wrestling world, focusing on hitting the road with his band, Fozzy. However, Y2J recently participated at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia where he entered the first-ever 50-Man Royal Rumble Match at #50.
In March 2018, a fan asked Jericho on Twitter if he was done with NJPW and the Superstar replied with “Unfortunately yes”.

It is to be noted that the 3-time WWF/E World Heavyweight Champion, Jericho has a history of not being transparent in the past regarding his future plans thus keeping an aura of mystery and suspense as to what he’ll do next.
