Well, it’s safe to say Chris Jericho did not see this one coming. He figured he’d team up with Kevin Owens, beat The New Day to earn a Raw Tag Team Title Match, and all would be well. Instead, he found himself abandoned by the WWE Universal Champion, pinned by New Day, Pedigreed by Seth Rollins and clowned from commentary by “The Ranch” stars Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson. Drink it in, man.
That’s too bad, considering it was going swimmingly for Jeri-KO for a while. Facing Xavier Woods (who made The List of Jericho twice in one night and subbed for a stitched-up Kofi Kingston) and Big E, the self-proclaimed best friends were firing on all cylinders. At least, until Seth Rollins appeared atop the ring and Woods nailed KO with an enzuigiri. A reeling Owens tagged Jericho and, once Woods was trapped in the Walls of Jericho, Rollins distracted The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla, allowing New Day to pounce with the Midnight Hour. Owens, for his part, barely even waited for the bell to hit the road, and didn’t interfere when Rollins nailed Jericho with a Pedigree. Some friend he is.
