Ultimo Dragon Wants To Face Chris Jericho In Final Match

The Jr. Heavyweight legend and Le Champion know each other very well

Coming up on 35 years in the pro wrestling business, and at almost 55 years old, Ultimo Dragon is naturally starting to ponder his retirement. With a career that’s taken all over the world, from WCW to AJPW to WWE and Dragon Gate amongst others, Dragon has seen and done it all.

But when it is time to finally hang up the boots and mask, Ultimo Dragon would like to face Chris Jericho in his final bout.

Talking through Sonny Onoo on the Perched On The Top Rope podcast, Dragon said the following:

“He thinks of - to answer your question, he thinks, ‘I might have two or three more years’ and you know, to answer your question, ‘My dream match would be somebody like Chris Jericho who came up together [with me]’. They started almost together so their wrestling history parallels.

“‘So one other thing I’d like to mention is that the people that I came up with; Rey Mysterio, Chris Jericho, those guys are still competing and they’re still - they are superstars’ and he said, ‘That really makes me warm in my heart when I think of them.’”

Ultimo Dragon and Jericho have wrestled ten singles bouts against one another throughout their career, with Jericho winning the last six whilst reigning as WCW Cruiserweight Champion in 1997 and 1998.
