Reason Chris Jericho Didn't Use Fozzy's 'Judas' At NJPW Dominion 2019 Revealed

The Alpha lost to Okada...

Fans watching last weekend's New Japan Pro Wrestling's Dominion event may have been shocked to see Chris Jericho walking down the ramp for his match with Kazuchika Okada to a song other than Judas - Fozzy's hit song.

It turns out New Japan didn't want to pay a fresh rights fee for the song.

Had Jericho known those in charge didn't want to pay for the music, he would have paid the money himself.

This news comes to us from the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter. For the avoidance of any doubt, here's what the latest WON said: "There was a question regarding Jericho’s entrance music, “Judas,” not playing on the streaming replay when it had in all of his previous matches with the company.

"What happened was, unbeknownst to Jericho, Sony had contacted New Japan and wanted a $2,500 rights fee for usage of the music. New Japan turned it down and instead put over a cover song. Jericho said that if he would have known about it, he’d have paid the $2,500 himself."
