Crimaz.com reported that Chris Jericho will be wrestling Finn Balor at the WWE live event in Tokyo on July 4th. Jericho requested this match because he wanted to work a bout that would be special to the Japanese crowd.
Jericho was originally scheduled to face Hideo Itami but asked for Balor when Itami got injured. Speaking of Itami, he will still be going to Japan at the end of this month to do promotional work for the tour.
