Wrestlemania XXXII Preview: AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho

Part 4.

Now this one kind of confuses me as there’s really no reason to have them fight three times before this match. I get the idea they’re going for but they could have done the same story after Styles beat Jericho once instead of a best of three. It’s not the best story but the build has been, for lack of a better term, phenomenal. Having Jericho whisper those AJ STYLES chants gave me chills and the story is better every time I think about it. Above all else, this story is simple and you could follow it step by step along the way. It’s a bit like Bret vs. Owen from 1994 and that’s a high compliment.

I’ll go with AJ winning for what should be obvious reasons. As is the case with every major Jericho match, there’s no reason for him to win and I can’t imagine WWE or Jericho in general for that matter is going to think otherwise. Styles wins here and moves on to something else, hopefully involving a title. Jericho can feud with whomever he wants and give them a good rub, despite the fact that he loses here.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. The booking has been suspect, but the storyline has been fantastic. It couldn’t have been a better introduction for AJ into the WWE.
