Jericho rules out doing NJPW/indie shows in the US
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/12/2018 at 09:30 AM

In an interview with Inside The Ropes, Chris Jericho talked about why he doesn't plan to wrestle for a non-WWE promotion in the United States:

"I got asked to do [Strong Style Evolved in] Long Beach, I said 'no.' I got asked to do [the G1 Special at the] Cow Palace, I said 'no.' I got asked to do "All In," I said 'no.' I don't want to do that," Jericho said. "You should see how many indie promoters have contacted me over the last six months. ... You guys have to understand, this is not just's a calculated, big money proposition. Big money for me, big money for the company doing it. I'm not going to work anywhere else, unless you want to pay six f------ figures, I'm not bragging, but this is where we're at. This is McGregor-Mayweather type s--- for me. I'm not saying I'm making $55 million like those guys, but what I'm doing it's the most I've made for the least amount of matches in my entire career. So, it's very calculated, everything I do has to be very smart."

Jericho continued, "It's not a matter of just going out and doing indies - and like I said - I always felt like the unwritten rule is I don't want to go into the states," Jericho continued. "I felt like that would be a real slap in the face of Vince [McMahon]. Ya know if something ever went down with us, I probably would do a show in the states and we could probably fill the Cow Palace. Jericho and Kenny [Omega] rematch, or whatever it may be. "All In" I'd love to be a part of that, but 'A' it's in Chicago and 'B' the risk sounding like an ass----, but I can't lower my value by working one of these shows. It's about picking my spots with the right guys at the right places for the overall contract I'm signing."
