Chris Jericho Is Teaming With Young Bucks Because He "Needed A Main Event"

Chris Jericho needed the Young Bucks in the main event.

This October, Chris Jericho will be hosting his Rock N Wrestling Rager at Sea which will feature wrestlers from the Impact Wrestling, Ring of Honor, and New Japan Pro Wrestling. Revealed in an episode of Being the Elite, Chris Jericho will be teaming with the Young Bucks in a six-man tag team match. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Jericho explains why he wanted the Young Bucks in that match.

“Our official name of the team is, ‘The Bucks of Jericho… or is it Y2Jackson.' I needed a main event and I’d been talking with the Bucks about doing something with them, and Nick Jackson was the one who said, ‘Why don’t the three of us team up and face Kenny, Marty, and Cody?,’” said Jericho.

The Young Bucks and Jericho are also part of the "Alpha Club" which has been discussed on Being the Elite a few times. Also on the cruise will be a Sea of Honor tournament featuring the wrestlers of Ring of Honor, Music, Comedy, and wrestling podcast live episodes some of which are with wrestling legends.

The full interview with Jericho is available at SI.com.
