Chris Jericho def. Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel

Curtis Axel fancies himself as perfection, but he’ll have to be a little bit better than that at Money in the Bank this Sunday after the Intercontinental Champion lost his focus – and his first match as a Paul Heyman Guy – against Chris Jericho on Raw. Axel was crisp in the early goings of the match against Y2J, countering the Codebreaker and successfully executing the Perfect Plex, but it was ultimately a mental error that led to Axel’s loss.

With Jericho reeling, Axel took too long to taunt his opponent and Y2J capitalized, locking in the Walls of Jericho and later throwing Axel into the commentary booth. Given that The Miz was scouting the champion from ringside, this proved to be the deciding factor as the champion jaw-jacked with his contender for too long and walked unwittingly into a second Codebreaker once he rolled back into the ring at the beat-up Heyman’s frantic behest. Call it almost perfect.
