Last Thursday on SmackDown, Chris Jericho finally got his win against Dean Ambrose … and just like that, the honeymoon is over for “The Best in the World at What He Does.” The Lunatic Fringe knocked Jericho off in their rematch on Raw, but the presence of Cesaro as the ring announcer, Alberto Del Rio as the timekeeper and Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens on commentary made the bout a veritable pressure-cooker for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match participants.
Well whaddya know, that pressure did, in fact, boil over. Everyone was civil enough to wait until after Ambrose reversed the Codebreaker into Dirty Deeds, but then it was “go time” as soon as Owens rushed Ambrose. And the rest followed, instigating a Pier-Six brawl that ended with Jericho making the symbolic grab of the contract. Oh and as for our pal Corporate Kane? It turns out he’s not getting the SmackDown job. But Shane McMahon officially turned the tables on Stephanie and named himself the man to run the blue-brand ship come July 19. Now that’s money.
