Fandango must win the feud against Chris Jericho.

Granted, the WWE is giving these two a break at this moment. Fandango will probably enter a feud with Wade Barrett and The Miz for the Intercontinental title. Chris Jericho will face CM Punk at the next WWE pay-per-view Payback.

But should the WWE scrap this feud altogether? No. At this point, it just means they’re taking a break.

Their pay-per-view matches are decent, as they established Fandango's potential as a great worker. Despite a few mistakes, these matches do a nice job showcasing Fandango. Jericho did his job at WrestleMania 29, putting over Fandango. However, Jericho won the rematch at Extreme Rules. It only leaves one solution: Their feud must be settled.

The only way this remains effective is Fandango winning their eventual rubber match. Jericho has nothing left to prove. He’s already established and realizes that when facing the younger talent. Y2J already put over Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler and others since his return last year. He realizes he needs to get the next generation of WWE Superstars their name and their time in the spotlight.

Fandango desperately needs that. He needs that momentum after WrestleMania. The Fandango “fad” died out apparently. He’s losing momentum even though he’s been scheduled in a feud for the Intercontinental title. According to (via Wrestlezone), Fandango will face Barrett and Miz at Payback for the title.

How can Fandango and Jericho cross paths again? It’s simple: Have Fandango win the title and face Jericho at the next pay-per-view to settle the score. Fandango can move on, saying he won the feud. Jericho can go on to face the top card that also needs to get over.

One thing’s for sure; Fandango must have the last laugh and win the feud against Chris Jericho. A victory over the feud would be a career moment for the young WWE Superstar, which would give Fandango exactly what he needs: becoming a top WWE player.
