Author’s take

The road towards Jericho vs Omega has been brilliant. And as Bubba mentioned, a lot of people are talking about this match. For people within the wrestling industry, Jericho vs. Omega will be bigger than any WrestleMania match that WWE might put forward in 2018.

But at the same time, for the mainstream casual fans, it’s going to be a different story. This is why Bubba probably stressed on the fact that WrestleMania will go on to make more money.
