Samoa Joe def. Chris Jericho
In two weeks, Samoa Joe will attempt to finish what he started against Seth Rollins when the two battle at WWE Payback. But before then, The Samoan Submission Machine had a G.O.A.T. to take care of when he clashed one-on-one with Chris Jericho on Raw, and the former United States Champion was out for a little payback of his own after Joe helped put him through a table a couple of weeks back.
The long and short of this tangled web, however, ended up in Joe’s favor when he powered out of the Walls of Jericho to lock in the Coquina Clutch. Jericho briefly managed to bridge his way into a defensive pinfall attempt, but Joe adjusted his position and submitted his foe before promising to defeat Rollins at Payback as retribution for The Kingslayer’s defeat of Triple H at WrestleMania.
As for Jericho, his night got even stranger. When he attempted to discuss his upcoming U.S. Title Match with Kevin Owens that could send Jericho to SmackDown LIVE if he wins, Elias Samson wandered through the interview, sparing Mike Rome a spot on The List of Jericho but earning The Drifter one for himself.
