AJ Styles vs Chris Jericho has been one of the best feuds in the WWE since the former TNA star made his debut in the company earlier this year at the Royal Rumble.

The rivalry, which looked like it had ended after their Fastlane match but was reignited after the split of Y2AJ, was pushed further last night on Monday Night Raw when Styles challenged Jericho to a match at WrestleMania 32 in just under two weeks time.

Y2J didn't respond to the challenge straight away, but he did give his answer in a WWE.com exclusive interview after Raw had finished.

He said: "Guess what Styles, you lost your place in line. You are not going to make a name on Chris Jericho. You are not going to make a name on me. I would rather sit out at WrestleMania, sit in the press box with all the idiot fans, sit with them rather than be in the ring with you."

He continued: "I will not face you at WrestleMania AJ Styles because you don't deserve to be in the ring with me ever again. Ever again. Ever again."

It looks like the feud is hotting up and it will conclude with a match at WrestleMania. Although it is yet to be confirmed, the WWE would be idiotic to not have this match take place at The Showcase of The Immortals.

Their match at Fastlane was one of the best matches on the pay-per-view, so if this rematch does still take place as expected, it has the capability to be one of the matches of the night.

Since joining the WWE at the Royal Rumble, Styles has shown his worth of being one of the best wrestlers in the world and a feud with Jericho has only allowed him to showcase this further alongside a WWE legend.

WWE will likely make this clash take place at WrestleMania as it would be a crime for them not to use Jericho and Styles. As for who needs the win more out of Y2J and The Phenomenal One, it has to be the latter.

Picking up a scalp like Jericho on the grandest stage of them all can do wonders for Styles. Although he is already widely accepted and loved by the wrestling community, a win will help him win over the couple more people that don't really know him. It can also help him push towards his first title run in the WWE.
