Jado Says The Timing Is Perfect For Jericho/Omega, Reveals What Seperates Jericho From Others

Jado thinks that this encounter between Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 is happening at the right place, at the right time.

He spoke to New Japan's website about Jericho's arrival back in New Japan Pro Wrestling, where he's scheduled to meet Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12. They know each other going back to when Jericho was touring in Mexico. For him, he was shocked when he saw Jericho's video challenging Omega:

It was a huge shock, and not just to Japanese wrestling, but the whole world. I mean, here’s this guy that unified the WCW and WWE heavyweight belts… do you know what the most important thing in wrestling is? It’s timing. Just the combination of absolute best time and absolute best place to do something nobody would think possible. Jericho, with the influence he has on the wrestling world, and Omega. This year it couldn’t happen; Omega was with Okada. 2019 maybe they couldn’t do it. Jericho just has a great sense of timing, of knowing ‘2018 is the time to do this’.

When asked what separates Jericho from others, Jado says it's Jericho's ability to make long matches short that really keeps him apart from everyone else:

Hmm, I’d say he has a unique ability to make long matches seem short. He can make twenty minutes seem like the blink of an eye...It’s more that he has the ability to completely change the atmosphere. All through the match that will go on before this, the crowd in the Dome will be thinking ‘Jericho’s next!’. When that match is done ‘he’s coming up!’. When he enters ‘he’s here!’. During the match everyone will be focused on what he does, so when it ends they’ll think ‘it’s finished already?’. I think the only person that has that similar ability is Okada. As soon as that coin drops on his entrance, he has you.

Jericho vs. Omega is part of a double main event that will go down on January 4 in the Tokyo Dome as part of Wrestle Kingdom 12. It will also air on AXS TV two days later
