During an interview with Inside The Ropes, Chris Jericho revealed that he was originally set to wrestle Shinsuke Nakamura at Wrestlemania 33:
ďAfter we went to Japan in June or July I remember coming back and talking to Vince, and I said youíve got to bring this Nakamura guy up to the main roster. I wanna work with him. Letís debut him at WrestleMania. I said Iíll stay until WrestleMania if I can work with Nakamura. Vince said okay. Then about a month later, I said that I actually think me and Kevin Owens could work at WrestleMania.Ē
