In the last several weeks, Chris Jericho has become heavily involved in the storyline with Kevin Owens. The two have become on-air buddies because of their connection as Canadians. In a recent episode of Talk is Jericho, the 45-year-old discussed what could lie ahead.
CJ: I was too busy thinking about the show in Toronto with AJ Styles, Talk Is Jericho LIVE, get your tickets now at MarkOutMoments.com. That’s why I didn’t win. I was obviously very distracted by this amazing event that we have coming up! (Laughs)
I think the storyline with Kevin Owens and Jericho is just beginning. I think there’s a lot of legs to this storyline and it’s one of the rarest of things. It’s a storyline that basically built organically that was never supposed to be a storyline. I had that with Shawn Michaels in 2008 and Rey Mysterio in 2009. We just end up with this present, this great chemistry between KO and I. A lot of intrigue and mystery. A lot of interest from the people watching from the WWE Universe. I am really looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen at Survivor Series, Hell in a Cell and continuing forward. I think there’s a lot in the tank for Jericho and Owens. Especially from what’s transpired so far.
This storyline truly took because of the injury to Finn Balor that will keep him out for the next several months. It was already in place with Owens and Jericho’s feud at the time against Enzo Amore and Big Cass but was taken up a notch when Owens won the title in a fatal four way following SummerSlam. The two has shown great chemistry together that should make a very interesting next couple of months.
Things could heat up on next week’s edition of Raw as Owens left Jericho in the ring again to suffer the fate of another Pedigree from Rollins. There could be a budding feud between them both because of that. It’s something to certainly keep an eye on.
