Chris Jericho def. Sami Zayn
Last week on SmackDown, the interference of Kevin Owens and Dean Ambrose landed Chris Jericho on the wrong end of a disqualification loss to Sami Zayn. The Shane-O-Mac mandated rematch between the two world-traveled Canadians ended in a far more decisive and, if you’re a Sami Zayn fan, disappointing, fashion. All of which is to say Jericho won, though it wasn’t nearly as simple as Codebreaker-1-2-3-hit the showers.
In fact, Zayn had been in the driver’s seat for the entire contest, landing a Blue Thunder Bomb and tornado DDT through the ropes to leave Jericho slumped against the ropes and dead to rights for the Helluva Kick. But Jericho reduced himself to a cowering heap before the boot could land its mark, taking advantage of the referee’s blind spot to thumb Zayn in the eye. Then, it was Codebreaker-1-2-3-hit the showers.
