Styles in currently in a feud with Chris Jericho and has been putting on great matches with the likes of Miz and Jericho. Jericho and Styles are set to fight at Fastlane in a rubber match and it would be good to see two accomplished wrestlers going head to head at a bigger event.
The first match was won by AJ Styles on RAW and the following match on Smackdown was won by Chris Jericho after he delivered a Codebreaker.
