- Chris Jericho responded to a tweet regarding how much extra business NJPW did due to his match with Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12 earlier this month. Jericho claimed that his involvement brought the company an extra $1.5 million in revenue, as seen below:
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.— Scott Simms (@baronvonscotty) January 17, 2018
1.5million dollars worth! :) https://t.co/NadWuZwWO0— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) January 17, 2018
