Are Chris Jericho and Vince McMahon working together to get Omega in WWE?
Are Chris Jericho and Vince McMahon working together to get Omega in WWE?

What's the story?

By now you're all surely aware that Chris Jericho will be wrestling Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12, with Jericho surprising NJPW viewers during their recent Power Struggle pay-per-view by challenging 'The Cleaner' to a match.

However, one ex-WWE writer believes that Vince McMahon and the WWE are also involved.

In case you didn't know...

Kenny Omega defended his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship against Beretta during 'Power Struggle' in a great match.

Afterwards, the 'Bullet Club' member issued an open challenge and the crowd went absolutely nuts when Jericho answered the challenge on the big screen.

The heart of the matter

This announcement has led to an increased amount of speculation as to how Jericho, a life-long WWE wrestler, is wrestling a match for another top wrestling promotion.

The prevailing theories are either that Jericho is done with WWE, or as former WWE creative Andrew Goldstein thinks, Vince McMahon is involved and this is all leading to something bigger.

The belief is that Jericho -- who has worked in WWE for a large part of his career and has on record said he'll never work anywhere else -- has explicit permission from Vince McMahon and WWE to engage in a feud with Kenny Omega, and appear at Wrestle Kingdom for NJPW.


And subsequently, NJPW and Omega will return the favour and finish the programme on WWE television.

What's next?

Currently, Jericho is in the midst of planning his 'Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager' set for October, 2018, where The Young Bucks and Marty Scurll are already booked to appear.

Given recent events, it seems likely that Kenny Omega and the rest of the Bullet Club will be involved in the wrestling and rock music cruise as well.

Author's take

At this point, no-one really knows what's going on behind the scenes of this interesting development in the wrestling world.

However, one thing's for sure, if Vince McMahon is slowly working us all behind the scenes, then it's clear the wrestling mogul has still got it.
