The Social Outcasts interrupted Jericho and Styles’ rematch
PORTLAND, Ore. — On an action-packed episode of SmackDown, AJ Styles and Chris Jericho battled in another classic contest, The Dudley Boyz said goodbye to the tables and Sasha Banks delivered a statement to her former Team B.A.D. partners.
With his rematch against AJ Styles imminent, Chris Jericho kicked off SmackDown on USA Network by continuing to question whether his new rival really is as good as his moniker suggests before calling The Phenomenal One down to the ring for their highly anticipated showdown.
Just as the two ring warriors were set to square off, however, The Social Outcasts arrived with their own unique brand of trash talk, directed toward both competitors. The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla took umbrage to the interruption, resulting in an all-out brawl that saw Heath Slater, Adam Rose and Curtis Axel being cleared from the ring by a suddenly united Jericho and Styles. As a result, Y2J and The Phenomenal Superstar’s clash would have to wait for later in the evening as they faced off against Axel & “The Radical Mongoose” in tag team action.
