Best Case Scenario
In a perfect world, this match gets about 20 minutes. They’re allowed to tell an exceptional story, and have a match that, years down the road, will still steal the show as a sleeper sensation.
This match makes me think of the Mania match Jericho had with CM Punk. Yeah, that one was a title match, but it wasn’t the match on the show. Hell, it wasn’t one of the top 3 or 4 matches on that show. But go ahead and rewatch WrestleMania in Miami, and the match and story hold up quite well. It’s a legacy match for both competitors, with an incredibly personal storyline… just like AJ Styles vs Chris Jericho will be.
