IWGP Intercontinental Champion, Chris Jericho, revealed on a recent episode of Talk is Jericho that he issued an idea to a higher up executive in WWE to have a cross-promotional match between himself and Seth Rollins as the two Intercontinental Champions at SummerSlam.
Check out what Jericho had to say down below:
”I got a scoop for you guys. I gotta be careful, though. I placed a call to a certain head of a certain wrestling company, let’s just leave it at that, and said ‘I have got something for ya. It’s boffo box office, it’s big time.’ I said ‘what do you think about first time ever Intercontinental champion vs. Intercontinental champion, Jericho vs. Rollins.’ ‘What’s the finish?’ ‘Doesn’t matter.’ The finish doesn’t matter. It’s getting people to buy it and get into it. IC title, New Japan vs. WWE, and you could make this happen. And there was some ‘well, you’d have to do it on TV.’ No, you would not. You wouldn’t have to do anything. I would show up the Monday night before SummerSlam, which has passed already, so you know that’s not going to happen. Because we get home… I literally could have, I checked, trust me, and the show is like in Greenville, South Carolina, or something. I could have been there at 4 pm, I could have run through the crowd, attacked Seth Rollins, made the challenge, made the match, Jericho vs. Rollins, IC title vs. IC title. I pitched it, got a decent response, and never heard another word again.”
