We are 5 months into 2016 and the WWE has been able to have entertaining shows week after week without key superstars such as Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and John Cena on TV weekly. Chris Jericho has been able to become WWE’s top heel in the matter of months and just came off a great feud with AJ Styles.
Ambrose and Jericho have been the highlight of Raw and SmackDown since their encounter at Payback and I think they will have the best match at Extreme Rules. This feud has been interesting and hard hitting since Payback with Chris Jericho hitting Ambrose with his plant Mitch then Ambrose stole Jericho’s jacket and tore it apart. Jericho strapped Ambrose into a straitjacket on SmackDown and this week Ambrose introduced the new Asylum match that will take place on Sunday.
At first it looked weird but I think this could be a new concept for Ambrose to continue to develop his character. Over the years, superstars have had match stipulations that have come to be known as their match. Undertaker with Hell in a Cell, Edge with TLC and John Cena with the "I Quit" Match. If this match is good I can see the WWE having this as Ambrose's new go-to stipulation when he is in a great rivalry.
I said this before but without Jericho being in the company the WWE would be struggling since they don’t have any strong heels outside Jericho and Owens. I don’t know how long Jericho will be around but I think these two can push this feud out till Money in the Bank or Battleground.
I will be live in attendance for Extreme Rules and I am really looking forward to the Asylum match.
