Chris Jericho requested to start a lengthy program with Rey Mysterio on Smackdown reports The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. They started teasing a possible feud between Jericho and Mysterio at European house show events where Jericho would “accidentally” unmask Mysterio. Many feel the feud has great potential if Jericho was to play a role in putting it together as his track record in the past has been very strong (such as the feud with Shawn Michaels).
