WWE had different Chris Jericho plans in place for Wrestlemania 33. The former world heavyweight champion revealed that during a recent interview with Busted Open Radio. Jericho was supposed to win the WWE Universal Championship from Kevin Owens in Orlando. Instead, Chris dropped the WWE United States Heavyweight Championship to his rival instead. Jericho was then supposed to have lost the Universal belt to Brock Lesnar before taking off to tour with Fozzy. Management changed up the plans when Goldberg decided to commit to working more matches. The former WCW star ended up in the main event title spot with Lesnar.
WWE fans upset with Chris Jericho plans
Once word gets out that WWE changed up their plans for Chris Jericho, a lot of fans are going to be upset. Jericho is the beloved veteran who has remained loyal to WWE for quite some time now. Many have been calling for Chris to get another run with a world title. Emotions will be stirred once fans know that Jericho had a good chance of doing that. Many will turn their resentment towards Goldberg. He is already a lightning rod of criticism from WWE fans who are not happy that part time performers are receiving pushes.
WWE fans upset with Brock Lesnar
Things might be better for Brock Lesnar if WWE had not changed those Chris Jericho plans. It means that the former UFC star would not have won the belt at Wrestlemania 33. Many are already complaining that Lesnar is not around even though he holds the WWE Universal Championship. At the very least, it would have bought Brock a month of not hearing the complaints. Then again, Lesnar probably doesn’t care about what those particular fans have to say about him. A match between Jericho and Lesnar might have been an interesting one to see.
