Rob Van Dam def. Chris Jericho

Welcome home, Mr. Monday Night. Rob Van Dam made his return to WWE’s flagship show after a six-year sabbatical and showed that – as the Brooklyn crowd helpfully pointed out – he does, indeed, still have it with a win over Chris Jericho.

The hybrid styles of the multi-time Intercontinental Champions meshed so perfectly in their bout that the two were at a dead heat for almost the entire time. The two veterans unleashed the full scope of their arsenals in the half-hour tilt, with Lionsaults, Rolling Thunders, and cross bodies flying in equal measure.

Watch the epic bout

Jericho regained momentum with a DDT and a Lionsault, but couldn’t turn RVD’s mighty legs into the Walls of Jericho, only locking in his famous hold after a failed hurricanrana from Van Dam. Once RVD reached the ropes, he quickly struck with a kick to Y2J’s head and capitalized off the felled future Hall of Famer’s proximity to the turnbuckle with a Five Star Frog Splash that put the bout to its end.
