Chris Jericho def. Apollo Crews to qualify for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match
As anyone with a basic knowledge of the internet can attest, Chris Jericho invented — among other things — Money in the Bank. Now he’ll have a chance to win it. The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla went from human pincushion to potential champion-in-waiting on Raw when he defeated Apollo Crews in a qualifying match, earning the six-time World Champion a spot in the match he helped conceive.
He might just owe an assist to a frustrated Sheamus, who beat up Crews before the bout to give Jericho an early leg up. Even though Crews seemed to have shaken off the effects and ultimately found success by targeting Jericho’s thumbtack wounds, it’s unlikely he’d have been caught by a Codebreaker had he not taken such a pummeling earlier. But Jericho probably wouldn’t want us to dwell on that. Money in the Bank has gotten the “Gift of Jericho.” Drink it in, man.
