Chris Jericho Challenges Kenny Omega for Wrestle Kingdom 12

 

After weeks of back and forth on social media, Chris Jericho has challenged Kenny Omega to a match at January’s NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12. This will mark Jericho’s first match held outside of the confines of WWE since he debuted with the company in 1999. When Jericho makes his periodic returns to WWE, it’s been reported that he signs short-term deals that just cover the length of his stay, which is presumably how he’s able to wrestle for NJPW.

Jericho and Omega have sniping at each other for awhile now on Twitter, and since there had never been any known real life animosity between the two Canadian athletes, most fans assumed that this was leading to a showdown in the ring. Some had speculated that the match would take place during next year’s Cruise of Jericho event that Y2J is putting together on the high seas, but it turns out the venue will in fact be the much bigger Wrestle Kingdom 12.

Held annually at the Tokyo Dome, Wrestle Kingdom is New Japan Pro Wrestling’s biggest event of the year, and has featured acclaimed western performers such as AJ Styles, Finn Balor, and Brock Lesnar in the past, as well as WWE’s current fast-rising Japanese star Shinsuke Nakamura. Jericho laid out the challenge to Omega at today’s Power Struggle event, after Omega had just finished defending his IWGP U.S. Championship against Trent Barreta.

Appearing on the main video screen, Jericho tore up a picture of Omega, before declaring himself the best in the world, and saying that he was making the challenge in an effort to prove that he was the greatest of all time. Jericho acknowledged that Omega was a great performer, but asserted that he was the true “alpha” of pro wrestling, and would show Omega why at Wrestle Kingdom. The live crowd erupted with cheers, and also chanted Y2J.

While Kenny Omega has yet to wrestle for WWE – although realistically, he probably will at some point – he is widely considered one of the best wrestlers working outside that company today, and a Jericho/Omega match-up is sure to be deemed a dream match by many fans. Interestingly, Jericho is still listed as a member of the SmackDown roster on WWE’s website, despite not having appeared on TV since July. One wonders if that will now change.

Trump will declare North Korea a state sponsor of terror

Trump will declare North Korea a state sponsor of terror

President Trump said Monday that he will designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism, a move designed to further isolate the nation for its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Trump said the move will impose further penalties on Pyongyang and result in the “highest level” of sanctions ever placed on the country. He added that the designation will be formalized Tuesday.

Trump said the decision “should have happened years ago” and will ramp up pressure on the “murderous regime” to “end its unlawful nuclear and ballistic missile development.”

The decision returns North Korea to a list it was removed from in 2008 to ease nuclear talks with the George W. Bush administration.

Trump’s announcement comes days after his return from a five-nation tour of Asia, which focused on curbing Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions.

White House officials telegraphed the move before Trump’s departure.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters earlier this month that the killing of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother at a Malaysian airport played into the decision. The half-brother, Kim Jong Nam, was killed with a banned nerve agent.

North Korea will join Iran, Sudan and Syria on the State Department’s list of terror sponsors.

The designation allows the U.S. to cut off foreign assistance, weapons sales, commercial exports and financial transactions with Pyongyang.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson conceded the “practical effects may be limited” because Pyongyang is already heavily sanctioned by the U.S. government.

But he called the move “very symbolic” of the U.S. desire to increase pressure on Kim Jong Un in an effort to persuade him to drop his nuclear program.

“We still hope for diplomacy,” Tillerson told reporters during a surprise appearance at the White House. “This is only going to get worse until you’re ready to come and talk.”

Trump had been under pressure from members of Congress to slap the designation on North Korea.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) applauded the administration for relisting North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.

“Over the past year alone, Kim Jong Un and his regime brazenly assassinated his brother with a chemical weapon and brutally tortured Otto Warmbier, leading directly to his tragic death,” he said in a statement, referring to the American student who died after his release from custody in North Korea.

“These aren’t isolated incidents, but are examples of a consistent pattern of terror,” Royce said, adding that Pyongyang’s push to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles threatens global security.

‘I Should Have Left Them In Jail’ (Trump’s Juicy TWEET)

‘I Should Have Left Them In Jail’ (TWEET)

 

President Donald Trump has regularly shown that he will lash out against people he feels do not show him the proper respect. Go ahead and add three players of the UCLA Men’s Basketball program to that list, all thanks to LaVar Ball, who is the father of one of those players, as well as our President’s tiny ego.

The three basketball players were arrested in China for shoplifting sunglasses. One of the players, LiAngelo Ball, is part of a high profile basketball family. His father, LaVar, had some controversial words concerning the President’s role in bringing his son home.

Appearing on ESPN Friday, LaVar was asked about the President’s role in keeping his son out of jail. LaVar responded in his typical braggadocio:

What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

In reality, the three athletes never actually went to jail. Trump spoke with the Chinese President Xi Jinping after hearing of their predicament, and they were allowed to return to the United States. They have since been suspended by the UCLA athletic program.

However, LaVar’s comments to ESPN appeared to strike a raw nerve with President Trump. He posted the following to Twitter, again making use of his newfound 280 character limit:

His tweet reads:

Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

Just… unpack that.

The President of the United States is picking a fight with three college students, all because the father of one of those students brushed off the President’s role in keeping his son out of a Chinese jail for shoplifting sunglasses.

Meanwhile, the former President of the United States was apparently born in Kenya and is a secret Muslim spy. His handpicked predecessor is the leader of a tightly knit criminal conspiracy (and a WOMAN!). She also apparently raped children in the basement of a pizza parlor.

Kyle Richards Opens Up About Having Fibromyalgia

 

We thought we knew everything about Kyle Richards, but the RHOBH star is opening up about her struggle with Fibromyalgia and the chronic pain that comes with it.

Kyle revealed that she started getting this pain when her mother died. “My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, but as my mom was sick and taking care of her I started feeling really sick myself. I went to a lot of different doctors and they would say, ‘Oh, you’re just depressed because your mom died.’ And I was like, ‘I’m just not buying that it’s only I’m depressed. Why am I having all these crazy symptoms?’” Kyle said in an interview on The Healer. “Then I was talking with someone and she said, ‘You have fibromyalgia. Everything you just said is fibromyalgia.’ So I went to this doctor who specializes in it, and he asked me a lot of questions. All of a sudden I felt like I had an answer and I felt better because it caused so much anxiety.”

Charlie Goldsmith started to use energy to help heal Kyle in the episode, she said that she felt a “warm, tingling sensation going through the area that bothers me most,” which is her neck and shoulders.

Kyle was hopeful this would help her pain. “That would be amazing to think, you know, that I could just be free of these symptoms and my husband [Mauricio Umansky] would never have to hear about it again,” Kyle said.

See what Kyle’s been doing since the last season of RHOBH:
