The match, which will be for at the IWGP Intercontinental Championship, is one of the most personal matches on the card. Both men have vowed to end the career of the other and it appears that they’ll be working within the confines of a match that will allow them to do just that.
Chris Jericho has said that he is not Tranquilo, he’s crazy. Naito has always been a bit of a loose cannon and this match may leave the most lasting impression.
A lot of people believe that this will be Chris Jericho’s swansong in New Japan and if so, he could potentially be going out a bloody mess.

This match just became a whole lot more must-see.
The official announcement was made at last night’s New Japan Fest and a video has been uploaded on NJPW’s YouTube video which you can see below:
