Chris Jericho recently returned to NJPW and had a once-in-a-lifetime matchup with the IWGP United States Champion Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12. A fan sent a tweet on how much extra business NJPW did due to Jericho’s match with Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 earlier this month. Jericho responded and claimed that his involvement brought the company an extra $1.5 million in revenue.
Below is the tweet sent out by Chris Jericho on how much business he brought to NJPW:
Very few wrestlers nowadays are legitimate draws; it’s the companies on the marquee that bring people in. That said, I’d like to know how many people bought tickets for #wrestlekingdom12 or subscribed to #NewJapanWorld after @IAmJericho came on board. I know I did.
