December 21, 2020 0 By JohnValbyNation

Chris Jericho defeating Bray Wyatt at Sunday’s WWE Battleground pay-per-view caught a lot of people by surprise and it turns out that Wyatt was originally booked to win the match.

Leading up to Battleground, betting lines showed Bray Wyatt as the clear favorite over Chris Jericho. During creative meetings that took place on Saturday afternoon, Wyatt was still penciled to win the match. Some time after those meetings, Vince McMahon made the call for Jericho to go over.

With Jericho committed to WWE through September, the plan is for him and Bray Wyatt to wrestle at SummerSlam as well as Night of Champions in September. Jericho’s last scheduled appearance with WWE is RAW the night after Night of Champions.
