Jack Swagger def. Chris Jericho

Nearly three years to the day when Jack Swagger cashed in his Money in the Bank contract against Chris Jericho to claim the World Title, the same two Superstars squared off in an epic main event on the blue brand.

After their backstage confrontation earlier in the night, Y2J took on the “Real American” in a brutal back-and-forth battle that had “instant classic” written all over it. While it was all Swagger early on, Y2J roared back, matching his opponent move for move.

In the final moments of the contest, Jericho seemed primed for victory as he attempted to nail Swagger with the Codebreaker. But the “Real American” used his brute strength to catch Y2J in midair and hurl him into the bottom turnbuckle. From there, it was just a matter of time, as Swagger planted Jericho with a devastating gut-wrench powerbomb before covering him for the victory.

With his SmackDown win, Swagger passed a huge test as he continues on his road to WrestleMania — and to World Champion Alberto Del Rio.
