Omega and Jericho are going for round II.
At the end of episode 138 of Being The Elite, it was announced that former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega and former IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho will clash once again at All Elite Wrestling's 'Double Or Nothing' show on May 25th in Las Vegas. Omega and Y2J first crossed paths in 2017 when Jericho attacked Omega at New Japan Pro Wrestling's 'Power Struggle' event in 2017 to set up their singles match at Wrestle Kingdom 12.
Chris Jericho attacked Kenny Omega for the second time this past September at 'ALL IN' after the lights went out at the conclusion of Pentagon Jr. and Kenny's match and when the lights cut back on, Jericho was in Pentagon's ring gear and hit a "Code Breaker" on Omega. Both men lost their respective championships at Wrestle Kingdom 13 and are now a part of All Elite Wrestling.
At the 'Double Or Nothing' ticket announcement party in Las Vegas this past Thursday, Kenny Omega was officially announced as a member of the AEW roster and a co-Executive Vice President of the company. Omega was interrupted by Chris Jericho and the two had a scuffle which has led to a sequel to their Wrestle Kingdom 12 match being made official for 'Double Or Nothing' at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in three months.
Here's a look at the updated match card for 'Double Or Nothing':
* PAC vs. Adam "Hangman" Page
* SCU (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, Scorpio Sky) vs. CIMA & 2 OWE Roster Members
* Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho
