Chris Jericho is playing the heel perfectly ahead of his clash against Dean Ambrose in the first ever Asylum match at Extreme Rules.
This will be one of the matches on this Sunday's pay-per-view, which also features a Fatal 4-way clash between The Miz, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and Cesaro for the Intercontinental Championship, and an Extreme Rules match between Roman Reigns and AJ Styles for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
Jericho vs Ambrose will be an Asylum match, which is essentially a black steel cage with a couple of items hanging from above including a fire extinguisher, a kendo stick, and of course Mitch the Plant. However, despite the stipulation being rather easy to grasp, some fans simply don't understand it.

WWE added a stipulation to the match after it was announced this week on Monday Night Raw, that the only way which The Lunatic Fringe or Y2J can win the match is via pinfall or submission, rather than having the usual rule for cage matches where if you climb out and drop to the floor below, you win as well. However, despite the stipulation being rather easy to grasp, some fans simply don't understand it.
Eric Money tweeted out to Jericho asking: "why is there a door when you cannot win by going out the door ?" The former WWE Champion was not happy with the stupid question asked to him, and keeping in his current heel character, he issued a savage response.
He tweeted: "Well let's think about that for a second....how about TO GET INTO THE CAGE YOU DUMB IDIOT!" The fan should have seen it coming, as it's quite obvious why the door is there. Brilliant burn by Jericho.
This isn't the first time the Canadian has spoken to fans in a heel matter over Twitter, as a couple of weeks ago, he was asking on the social networking site: "What's the most physically painful thing you've endured while wrestling in WWE?"
He responded: "Dealing with stupid fans." This manner of speaking to fans has helped him establish himself as one of the best heels in the company today alongside another superstar that has been doing exactly the same thing, Kevin Owens.
It's always great to see superstars commit to their role as a heel or face inside and outside of the ring, whether it be for promo work with media outlets, or in this case, on social media. It adds to the current feud they're involved in and it gets more fans invested overall.
