AI shadow counter failed?

I was just playing a match against kan ra, i was rash. settings were on hard and he’s basically just blocked the entire match (he got one punch on me the entire match) and he went to counter this and on the 3 count he simple did nothing? I just continued to pile into him. Is this a glitch, he didn’t lock out or anything.

Idk if you are talking about the same thing or not but in Shadow Survival as Kilgore I have had the AI try and break my shadow linkers and it will actually do it right (The announcer even yells, " 1 2 3 BREAK!!! " yet I don’t get broken and continue my combo lol
