On the latest episode of Talk is Jericho, Chris Jericho discussed a huge match that he pitched to a “higher up” in the WWE. The timing of when this took place was unclear, but Seth Rollins was still the Intercontinental Champion when he spoke with the WWE.
Essentially Chris Jericho wanted to have an Intercontinental Champion vs. Intercontinental Champion match at SummerSlam this year. It would have been the IWGP Intercontinental Champion, Chris Jericho, vs the WWE Intercontinental Champion, Seth Rollins. After he made the pitch Jericho said he received positive feedback, and felt the match had a shot at happening, but he never heard back from anyone at the WWE.
It’s a shame that match isn’t happening. It would have been something we have not seen before, and would have been a damn good match. Fortunately we should still get an excellent WWE Intercontinental Championship when Seth Rollins challenges Dolph Ziggler tonight at SummerSlam.
