Chris Jericho sneered at the thought of A.J. Styles being the favorite to win their match tonight. Jericho said the fans are idiots for picking Styles over him and he proved everything right. He said he is the Best in the World at what he does and after a dozen WrestleMania, he did it again. Jericho declared that Styles is done, over, and gone. “Now he has to go back into catering and eat a big pile of steaming crow,” Jericho said. Jericho closed by declaring in total heel mode that from this day forward until the day he dies, “the worst is yet to come.” (Video Clip)

Paul Heyman gloated about Brock Lesnar defeating Dean Ambrose.
