Now approaching 50 years of age, Chris Jericho continues to make headlines for his work in the ring and his projects outside of it. Most wrestlers his age are barely hanging by a thread on the indie scene or have even moved onto other jobs, but Y2J is still going strong and 2018 is shaping up to be his most memorable year ever.
The year started off with Jericho and Kenny Omega putting on a wrestling clinic at Wrestle Kingdom 12. The match received a five-star rating by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and Jericho has hinted at future dates with New Japan Pro Wrestling. But besides his work overseas, Jericho plans to do work on the seas of the Atlantic Ocean with the Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager at Sea.
The cruise will consist of rock bands, comedy shows and, of course, wrestling. The latter is being highlighted by Jericho and will also be hosted by Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler. While Jericho, alone, is enough to sell the event, Y2J announced the next guest for the cruise and it's none other than the man he went toe to toe with at Wrestle Kingdom, Kenny Omega.
"Kenny Omega, you claim to be the best in the world. But you know what I think...I agree," says Jericho.
"I know that you are because you beat me at the Tokyo Dome in what many are saying is Chris Jericho's best match....And that's why I agree, you are the best in the world and that's why I wanted you on Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager at Sea....and I gotcha!
"Kenny Omega is coming aboard the Jericho Cruise!"
An already-stacked lineup just got even more stacked and Omega adds to a lineup that includes Cody Rhodes, Dalton Castle, The Young Bucks, and Marty Scurll as performers. Also legends such as Mick Foley, Rey Mysterio and Diamond Dallas Page will be special guests for the cruise.
The cruise will take place in late October so there is a chance that even more big names will be announced later on. But for now, Omega is a headliner to go along with Jericho and we can expect those two to mix it up one way or another on the high seas.
