Chris Jericho released a video promo on his Instagram page in response to NJPW superstar Hiroshi Tanahashi's recent interview with Tokyo Sports, where "The Ace " claimed that if he defeated "Le Champion" on night two of Wrestle Kingdom 14 he would challenge Jericho for the AEW World's Heavyweight Championship.
The leader of "The Inner Circle" reveals that he has spoken to AEW President & CEO Tony Khan, and will give Tanahashi the title opportunity if he loses at WK14.
"What you don't know is I speak and read perfect Japanese and I read what you said about the Tokyo Dome," Jericho stated. "You said if you can beat me that you would enter the forbidding portal and request a title shot for the AEW Championship."
Jericho added, "I thought it's a great idea. So, 'Le Champion' asked the Chairman of the Board, the owner of AEW, Tony Khan, if it was okay to grant your request, and he said 'yes.' So, if you can beat me in the Tokyo Dome, I will give you a championship match for the AEW Title."
