During the video segment, Jericho proceeded to highlight his list of achievements in Japan across various promotions. He then unveiled his plan to grant Konosuke Takeshita the chance to face him in Takeshita’s home promotion at DDT Ultimate Party 2023, scheduled for November 12, 2023.
The feud between Jericho and Takeshita is part of Jericho’s rivalry with Don Callis. Callis got Jericho attacked by Takeshita and Will Ospreay before Jericho lost to Ospreay at All In. Callis also took away Sammy Guevara who turned on Jericho after their match at Grand Slam.
Jericho is also set for a star-studded trio match at AEW WrestleDream where he, Kenny Omega, and Kota Ibushi will face Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara, and Will Ospreay.
