Ex-WWE writer suggests possible Vince McMahon secret plan behind Jericho V Omega

Huge news in the wrestling world broke on Sunday that Chris Jericho would face Kenny Omega at New Japan Pro Wrestling's Wrestle Kingdom 12 - their equivalent of WrestleMania.

Kenny Omega is easily the biggest star in the world today not signed to the WWE and he is currently, alongside Cody Rhodes, one of the main faces of the Bullet Club.

Chris Jericho, on the other hand, has not had a wrestling match outside the grand stage of the WWE since 1999 and he has forged himself a career that will not only earn him Hall of Fame honours, but he will be regarded as one of the greatest of all-time.

Y2J has been embroiled in a Twitter feud with Omega for the past few weeks and it seems that the core of the rivalry stems from the fact that both men are from Winnipeg, Canada.

The argument started out over who was the greatest from Winnipeg, but it quickly turned into Jericho's insistence that Omega hasn't done anything until he wrestles in the 'big leagues' of the WWE.

Jericho turns 47-years-old next week while Omega is nearly 13 years his junior at 34.

However, no one is in doubt that these two can put on an incredible match and Twitter is buzzing after the announcement that they will square off on January 4, 2018.

Take a look at the video NJPW ran to announce the match:

However, one ex-WWE writer believes this is simply a set-up to something much bigger.

It's been said for a long time that Omega could be a huge star in the WWE and according to Andrew Goldstein, that's on the horizon.

As you can see from the tweet above, he speculates that WWE owner Vince McMahon will have signed off on Jericho doing a one-off match in Japan and Omega will then appear at the Royal Rumble two weeks later.

This should go on to have Jericho and Omega square off at WrestleMania 34, a similar kind of introduction that AJ Styles was given to the company - which we can all agree has worked out well.

Jericho had, arguably, his best-ever WWE run during his last stint with the company, but could this top that?
