Tetsuya Naito Says He's Superior In Every Single Way To Chris Jericho As A Wrestler

Tetsuya Naito Says He's Superior In Every Single Way To Chris Jericho As A Wrestler

Tetsuya Naito spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard on Chris Jericho, the his recent title win, and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

"As a wrestler, I'm superior to him in every single way. The only place he might have me beat is in name recognition. He's a global superstar. So by beating Jericho, the name Tetsuya Naito, and Los Ingobernables de Japon, becomes even more of a worldwide household name. And that business he pulled in Fukuoka? That was just plain rude. I need him to understand that you can't do that and expect to get away unharmed."

On winning back the IWGP Heavyweight Championship

"There are a lot of championships in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Of those, the IWGP Heavyweight Championship is number one, the most important. That's the truth. But it's also the truth that right now, Tetsuya Naito is more important, has more worth than the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. So I'm not worried. That title will find its way to me in due course. It's only natural."
