The rivalry between two bitter superstars Chris Jericho and CM Punk will finally culminate in what will be a match for the ages for the World Heavyweight Championship on this weeks Smackdown.
After competing in a triple threat for the championship at The Royal Rumble PPV, Jericho was not involved in the decision for the championship and feels that he deserves one more championship match. BrendenPlayz spoke to Smackdown General Manager Edge about his decision to grant him the match.
“I felt I made the right call” Edge explained. “They had a hell of a match at the Rumble and at TLC, so I think it’s only fitting we do this one more time to determine the true champion. Jericho wasn’t involved in the decision at the Royal Rumble and after the way he lost his championship in the first place at TLC, I’m willing to give him one more shot”.
After one was said to be one of the greatest matches in RAW history between Ryback and the returning Triple H on the recent episode of Monday Night RAW, many have wondered if Edge’s decision to grant the match was influenced by RAW. “Absolutely, we are the dominant brand in the WWE and we want to keep it that way. We are on the road to Wrestlemania and I personally believe that we have been killing RAW every single week for months. If they want to have a big match for their main event, well we will have one even bigger this week”. Edge replied.
On Smackdown the World Heavyweight Championship will be up for grabs. With heavy rumours that Christian is still out of action due to the injuries suffered by the hands of Chris Jericho after the Royal Rumble, we may finally see a fair one on one encounter between Chris Jericho and CM Punk for the championship.
Oh and by the way, that match, will be contested under No Holds Bared stipulations!
