Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega In Huge WrestleDream Challenge

Kenny Omega Chris Jericho

It looks like it will be a case of the enemy of my enemy is my friend for Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega at WrestleDream.

The rivalry between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho goes further back than the history of AEW. The two men met for the first time at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January 2018 which marked Jericho’s first non-WWE match in nineteen years. Omega won that bout to retain his IWGP US Championship but Jericho avenged that defeat in the main event of AEW’s first pay-per-view, Double Or Nothing in May 2019.

However, one thing Jericho and Omega do have in common is their association with the slimy Don Callis – something both men have been made to regret in recent months.

Callis turned on Omega several months ago bringing Konosuke Takeshita with him to the darkside as he started to build his family. He then looked to recruit his old friend Chris Jericho before revealing his true intentions and turning on him as well.

Don Callis was in Will Ospreay’s corner for Ospreay’s bout with Jericho at All In and now he has got someone a lot closer to Jericho to try and finish the job.

Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho clashed at Dynamite Grand Slam as they sought to ease the tension between them. Jericho picked up the win but after the match, Guevara turned on him by kicking The Ocho below the belt. Don Callis then made his way to the ring as the masterplan revealed itself and The Spanish God found himself in Callis’ family.

Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega make peace to team up

At Rampage Grand Slam, Don Callis’ antics continued as Takeshita and Guevara took out Jericho. With Callis about to deliver a brutal screwdriver blow, Kenny Omega came to the rescue before having a staredown with Jericho.

Backstage, Chris Jericho then suggested that the two men team up alongside Kota Ibushi – another man who has been in the sights of Don Callis – against Guevara, Takeshita, and a mystery partner at WrestleDream on October 1st.
