Chris Jericho Says He Never Heard Back From WWE After Pitching an IWGP vs WWE IC Title Match
Former WWE Intercontinental and current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho revealed on the latest episode of his “Talk Is Jericho” podcast that he recently pitched to WWE the idea of an IWGP vs WWE IC Title match, in which he would face Seth Rollins, who was likely the Champion at the time Jericho had the idea.
“I placed a call to a certain head of a certain wrestling company and said ‘I’ve got something for you, it’s big time”, said Jericho, h/t to Fightful.com for the transcription. “What do you think about first time ever Intercontinental Champion versus Intercontinental Champion. Jericho versus Rollins. What’s the finish? doesn’t matter. New Japan versus WWE and you can make this happen”.
After WWE appeared to have “decent” interest in the match, Jericho actually planned to appear on Raw on August 13th to attack Seth Rollins and set up the match, but Jericho claims he never heard back from WWE on the idea.
It’s worth noting that Jericho has seemed to change his tune quite a bit in recent weeks with regards to not working for another United States wrestling promotion other than WWE, and most recently noted on Twitter that 2019 is going to see interesting things for “The Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla”:
2019 is gonna be an interesting year…. #FreeAgentJericho
