World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is set for a huge heel turn on its flagship show “Monday Night Raw”. The company has planned this ahead of the upcoming WrestleMania 32 to add some flavor to the wrestling card. Although no particular name has surfaced, speculations suggest that Chris Jericho is the superstar likely to turn heel. His possible opponent will be AJ Styles.
This would be a dream match for the WWE audience. Although both the superstars have faced each other three times in recent past, it would be a special delight to see both AJ Styles and Jericho fighting it out in a WWE ring in front of 100,000 people.
AJ Styles made his debut in WWE at the Royal Rumble, last January. He has been received with open arms by the audience and has so far featured in some meaningful feuds. His last major feud was with Jericho himself at Fastlane pay-per-view. Since then both the superstars have formed a tag team partnership and is fighting out battles with The New Day.
The New Day are the current WWE tag team champions and a possible WrestleMania match for the title was predicted against Styles and Jericho. However, WWE feels that a single duel will be better for business and hence are looking to turn Jericho heel, as reported by Inquisitr.
A tag team title match is scheduled at this week’s RAW, but it’s unlikely to witness a title change. What could happen is that Jericho may turn heel on Styles leading to a possible WrestleMania duel.
WWE WrestleMania 32 doesn’t have a lot of big matches on its card yet. Placing AJ Styles vs. Jericho will surely make huge money. Vince McMahon and Triple H are reportedly expected to cash in on the opportunity.
