Chris Jericho has had an incredible wrestling career spanning almost three decades at this point. He signed with WCW and the WWE during the late 90s, being one of the many stars to appear on both companies programming during the Monday Night Wars.

Mick Foley recently took to Twitter and responded to a tweet from Jericho regarding their attendance at a show at the Ryōgoku Sumo Hall in Tokyo. Foley was so impressed by Jericho, that he recommended Jericho to Paul Heyman.

Definitely a real story. I did attend the Sumo show with @MasanoriHorie – and based on that amazing match, gave @IAmJericho my highest recommendation to @HeymanHustle Jericho attended an #IWAJapan show a week later – and we hit it off instantly.
