Wrestlezone and Wrestlingnews.co reported that the two parties involved in the altercation were Chris Jericho and Sin Cara. While LaBar himself did not report the names as seen above, he did confirm it himself:

Wrestlingnews.co reported that Jericho supposedly got the better of Sin Cara in this fight.
There is no word as to how, why, or who started the fight, but this isn’t the first time this year that either man got into a backstage altercation. Sin Cara got into a shoot fight with Simon Gotch on the draft edition of Smackdown backstage. In that scenario, it was said that Sin Cara got the better of Gotch.
For Y2J on the other hand, he famously got into an altercation backstage with Brock Lesnar due to his concern for Randy Orton after the Summerslam main event this year that saw Orton get elbowed into a bloody mess by Lesnar.
Jericho reportedly thought it was a shoot and even confronted Lesnar without backing out. The word is that that incident led to Y2J gaining a lot of respect in the locker room from his fellow talent. Both Sin Cara and Y2J have a reputation of being tough guys in the locker room who never back down no matter what.
This leads to an obvious conclusion that the two would not back down from each other, whatever the situation was.
