Chris Jericho has traveled the world and worked with some of the greatest in his career. He knows how good Undertaker is, and he shouldn’t ignore any comparisons with Dead Man. One of the stars of New Japan Pro-Wrestling seems to deserve this comparison.
Le Champion defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi in Wrestle Kingdom 14 and both have fought fiercely so far. When talking Bused Open Radio, Jericho compared working with Tanaxashi to Dead Man because they are both so good.
“Wow when you get in the ring with him (Tanaxashi). She’s so good, I just don’t smile thinking. What really reminds me is that the first time I worked with Undertaker, I didn’t work with him until I was at WWE for twelve years. We’ve never been to the same show and we really crossed paths. And it was just unbelievable to be with a guy like that, just like “god” it’s all true. That’s right! Everything you hear about Undertaker is true! He’s really, really good. ”And I felt the same way about Tanakashi. We were so happy to be there and it was so explosive. He was so smooth. It was a really great game and, as I said, it helped sell the Tokyo dome that year. When we were in Tokyo for two nights, it was the second night in New Japan. It was my last meeting, maybe at least. Who knows, will we go back now? But if this is the last one, how do we get out? ”
Undertaker’s career in the ring is over, but Hiroshi Tanahashi is still going strong. We need to see if Tanahashi will ever find his way to the AEW, but Chris Jericho’s contract with NJPW has expired and they have yet to reach a new deal.
There are still incredible fights in Jericho and Tanaxashi, and you can watch the video below to see the final results of these moves.
