On Raw’s edition of “Miz TV,” AJ Styles responded to The Miz’s rude behavior by attacking The A-Lister. As a result of their altercation, the two Superstars squared off on SmackDown — with Chris Jericho joining the SmackDown announce team. But after The Phenomenal One made The Awesome One tap-out with an innovative Calf Crusher out of nowhere, Y2J entered the ring with a huge challenge.
A week and a half earlier, Styles had reigned triumphant over Jericho in his Raw debut. Already aware that Styles is good, the six-time World Champion wanted to find out if the up-and-comer was great. With that in mind, Jericho challenged Styles to a rematch next week on SmackDown.
