For the last couple of months, we've seen Chris Jericho and AJ Styles in a storyline leading up to WrestleMania 32. Now the match has been confirmed - The Phenomenal One will make his WrestleMania debut against Y2J.
This will not be the first time that we've seen Jericho vs. Styles. In fact, it'll be the fourth time that the two have stepped into the ring together. The first time was on January 25, 2016, on Monday Night RAW in which AJ won. The second was on February 11, 2016, on Friday Night Smackdown, this time, won by Jericho, and then once again at WWE Fastlane 2016 with Styles taking the upper hand.
With those three matches, Styles is 2-1 against Jericho and now, has nothing left to prove. Styles won the tie-breaker bout and having a fourth match doesn't achieve anything for The Phenomenal One, nor does it achieve anything for Jericho.

Chris Jericho is that of an "enhancement talent." He is used in order to evaluate new and upcoming superstars and give them some major victories. Wrestlemania vs. AJ Styles is simply no exception to that rule. With Chris Jericho most likely set to lose at Wrestlemania, he doesn't achieve anything. AJ Styles also doesn't need another win over Y2J.
On top of that, it's a match that we've already seen before. Although it comes with the promise of being entertaining, much like the other three bouts were indeed that, facing Jericho yet again does absolutely nothing for Styles.
Many fans believed that AJ Styles would be catapulted straight into a championship feud, most likely with Kevin Owens for the Intercontinental Championship as that has been teased since the Royal Rumble Match.
Instead now, Styles will have to wait for that championship shot as Owens already now has a match. Styles' debut in the Royal Rumble match was accompanied by monstrous amounts of momentum which he risks losing if WWE continues on with this feud despite how AJ Styles has already proven to be the better man winning the tiebreaker contest.
The match will be great and full of amazing action. Following this match however, WWE really need to switch things up for AJ Styles before he loses that momentum that he came into the company with.
