In the midst of Triple Threat fury, Jericho looked ready to use Edge's own finisher against him. But, at the last second, The Rated-R Superstar turned the tables on the "best in the world at what he does," blasting him with the Spear once again. However, when The Ultimate Opportunist went for the cover, Jack Swagger suddenly yanked him out of the ring and grabbed the huge pin for himself.

Before the smoke could clear on his first title defense, "The All-American American" hit the war torn Edge with a post-match Gutwrentch Powerbomb. Then, as the World Champ made his exit from the ring, Jericho reentered and proceeded to brutalize Edge's previously injured ankle while it was trapped inside the steel ring steps.
