Chris Jericho, who captured the IWGP Intercontinental Title at NJPW Dominion today, appeared on Busted Open Radio on Friday morning to discuss his bout against Naito at Dominion.
During the appearance, Jericho related his match against Naito to an old-school babyface vs heel encounter, in that Naito is a beloved babyface in Japan, and Jericho set up his attacks on Naito to be more of a traditional, old-school heel against the Japanese hero.
