Backstage News On Original Plans For Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt At WWE Battleground

Bray Wyatt was originally supposed to defeat Chris Jericho at Sunday’s WWE Battleground pay-per-view but the finish was changed on Sunday and it was reportedly a Vince McMahon decision.

As of Saturday’s creative meetings, Wyatt was still planned to defeat Jericho at the pay-per-view. The two will be having their rematch at SummerSlam and then likely another match at Night of Champions before Jericho takes another hiatus.

    Three Bray Wyatt vs Chris Jericho matches? YES

    Jericho needed to win at BG. Not sure why they would’ve had it planned otherwise. If it’s been planned as a 3 ppv feud Y2J needs a win and it’s better for Bray to win at the BIG show at SummerSlam then to win at a meaningless show like BG. Jericho now exists to put guys over so Bray obviously would then get the win at NoC to win the feud and send Y2J packing for a while again.

    i could care less if Y2J won over Bray, his purpose is to put over talent (UNLIKE HE WHO SHALL NOT BE NAMED!) and he will do so after building himself up as a credible opponent for their final clash at either SS/NoC.

    Besides, Wyatt’s promos always make him look like the victor. His ‘War’ promo made me forget that Y2J won at Battleground, the fact that he gets to work with Chris is a victory in it’s own right, a lot of the attention in the WWE is directed to Bray, and soon after, he will run the ranks and defeat fuckboy-buckethead in the biggest war currently residing.

    Hopefully their next clash won’t end in some cheap fashion (DQ).
