- Earlier this week, Hiroshi Tanahashi spoke to Tokyo Sports about his upcoming Wrestle Kingdom 14 match against AEW World Champion Chris Jericho on January 5. While this match is a non-title bout, Tanahashi felt if he did win, and Jericho wanted a rematch, the title should be added to the mix.

In the video below, Jericho has since responded and has agreed if Tanahashi wins, he'll give the challenger a rematch for the AEW Championship.

"What you don't know is I speak and read perfect Japanese and I read what you said about the Tokyo Dome," Jericho began. "You said if you can beat me that you would enter the forbidding portal and request a title shot for the AEW Championship. I thought it's a great idea. So, 'Le Champion' asked the Chairman of the Board, the owner of AEW, Tony Khan, if it was okay to grant your request, and he said 'yes.' So, if you can beat me in the Tokyo Dome, I will give you a championship match for the AEW Title."
