Chris Jericho def. Cody Rhodes

Just weeks away from battling Ryback at Money in the Bank, Chris Jericho faced Cody Rhodes on WWE Main Event. Rhodes was looking to reassert his footing following a tag team loss to Christian & Sheamus on Raw. A victory against WWE’s first-ever Undisputed Champion would surely give Rhodes the confidence and momentum he was looking to build.

Wisely, Rhodes countered Jericho’s aggressive offense by seizing opportunities to execute questionable tactics – such as an eye poke – when the official wasn’t looking. While the son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes focused on Y2J’s eye, the WWE Universe remained in support of “The Ayatollah of Rock n’ Rolla.”

Rhodes managed to maintain control against the crafty veteran, thanks to targeting Jericho’s eye. Displaying the resilience that has bred much of his success for nearly two decades, Y2J refused to give in – even if he was visually impaired. Jericho withstood Rhodes’ relentless offense, kicking out of pinfalls following his opponent’s trademark maneuvers, including the Disaster Kick, Alabama Slam and Cross Rhodes.

Although Rhodes reciprocated and escaped a pinfall following Jericho’s Codebreaker, his undoing would be the continued assault on Y2J’s eye. Catching Rhodes’ foot as the former Intercontinental Champion targeted his eye again, Jericho managed to lock in the Walls of Jericho for a hard-fought victory.
