10 Last-Minute WWE Fastlane Rumors You Need To Know
9. Chris Jericho Turns Heel
Since beginning his mini-feud with AJ Styles, Chris Jericho has been displaying the more arrogant side of his personality - he's been begrudgingly giving Styles credit as a great wrestler, but he's also questioned "The Phenomenal One's" previous experience and has said that he's not sure if he likes him. Though both men are good guys, the wildly popular Styles has been positioned as the babyface in the feud. Could this, then, mean that a full-fledged turn for Jericho is coming? Rumors of Jericho becoming a heel have been floating since last year, when he angrily walked out on partners Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose after the trio lost a match to The Wyatt Family. Jericho is always gold as a heel, and a turn would allow him to continue his feud with Styles into WrestleMania. While that could make for entertaining programming, Jericho is likely going to be a babyface for the rest of his career. As a beloved veteran who only wrestles part-time, his value is in coming back, getting pops, and putting over other talent. Plus, fans genuinely love him and see him as a link to when wrestling was still cool, meaning they'll probably cheer him no matter what.
