Intercontinental Championship - Triple H

April 05, 2001 - April 12, 2001

Chris Jericho and Triple H locked up in a classic SmackDown match for the Intercontinental Championship. Jericho hit a bulldog and a Lionsault, but as he went for the pin, Stephanie McMahon distracted the referee. Jericho then locked Triple H into the Walls of Jericho, but Stephanie distracted the referee once again. Commissioner William Regal also ran down to ringside and nailed Jericho with a chair. Triple H went for a pin on the champ, but Jericho amazingly kicked out at two. The Game then hit the Pedigree, and that was enough to give Triple H the win and the Intercontinental Championship.
