The build-up to the Kenny Omega vs Chris Jericho match has been littered with embarrassing claims and hyperbole.
Jericho has added yet another stupid comment to his new list, that being, his “stupid comments list,” by comparing his independent pro wrestling match with Kenny Omega, to Mayweather vs McGregor, one of the highest grossing sporting events in history.
Speaking on NJPW video, Jericho said:
“This match was very important to me and very interesting because it’s a match that nobody thought could happen. It’s a lot like Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor in you take two huge stars from two separate places and put them in a match that nobody thought could happen. So, to me, it’s exciting for me after 27 years of being in the wrestling business, it’s exciting for the fans both in New Japan and worldwide, and I think it gives Kenny a whole new aspect of his career.”
The delusional Jericho is clearly over-looking the fact that Mayweather vs McGregor made over $400 million, with some insiders estimating that Mayweather made over $300 million for his 10th round TKO of McGregor. In contrast, Jericho vs Omega is highly unlikely to even make $400,000, which is 0.1% of what Mayweather vs McGregor made, making Jericho’s comparison beyond laughable.
