It was the feud Chris Jericho returned for and finally it seems the score will be settled next week on Raw as Y2J and Bray Wyatt collide inside a steel cage.
Jericho returned a little over two months ago and has been the subject of Wyatt's latest obsession, but after a win for Y2J at Battleground and a win for Wyatt at Summerslam, it seems the score is even and the only way to settle it is for the two to collide inside the steel.
Night of Champions will be Jericho's final stand for his current run in WWE, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will make it there since he is facing a guy who is no stranger to steel cages, after the one he had with Daniel Bryan on Raw earlier in the year.
It's not likely his family will be on hand to help him next week, even though he managed the win at Summerslam when they were banned from ringside and since Luke Harper and Erick Rowan have headed down the tag team trail and leaved the patriarch of the Wyatt family to weather the Jericho storm all on his own.
Bray will feel he should be able to end the entire feud between himself and Jericho inside the cage, but at the same time this needs to lead up to a final show down at Night of Champions so that Jericho is free to leave an tour with Fozzy.
The lead singer only returned to put Bray over better within the company and for the WWE Universe, a job Jericho does often and it allows him to continue to be a part time wrestler as well as touring with his band. But this feud hasn't worked out very well for him this time around, whether it's because Seth Rollins and The Authority completely overshadow everything happening on Raw over the past few months or because he and Bray don't seem to be a great fit as a rivalry, still remains to be determined, but this feud has been lacking his usual magic.
Maybe the steel cage match next week will bring the rivalry to life a lot more and will add the brutality we have been missing, since a lot of this feud has been the two cutting promo's on each other, something Bray has become famous for.
But a promo is only there to build the match up, Bray needs to deliver in the ring next week if he ever wants to be the superstar WWE have been trying to build him up to be. Right now his promo work is a lot better than his ring work and hopefully a wrestling partner like Jericho should bring out the best in him and should set up a fantastic finale to this feud at this months pay-per-view so that Jericho will deservedly go out in style.
