While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Chris Jericho confirmed reports that the finish to AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens was botched in the United States Championship match at the WWE Battleground event.
“The idea was for me to work with AJ on Tuesday, do nothing with Kevin,” Jericho said. “And then the match happened on the Sunday and they legitimately screwed it up, it happens sometimes. Whatever happened didn’t work. That’s why they did the triple threat, because they had to get the belt back on AJ because of the screw-up over the weekend.”
“It ended up working out great,” Jericho said. “It was the classic Vince line of taking a negative and turn it into a positive. And it was a great appearance, the match was great, the promo was great. It was a lot of fun.”
