In an epic prelude to two incredible singles showdowns at WWE Payback, Dean Ambrose and Sami Zayn combined forces against Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens in SmackDown’s tag team main event.
When order broke down in the final minutes, though, Zayn looked to help his partner by charging into the ring from his corner and temporarily dismantled an interfering Jericho with a Helluva Kick that hurled the six-time World Champion out of the ring. The InZayn actions plowed the road for the legal man Ambrose to prepare to launch an aerial assault on a war-torn Owens.
But Jericho quickly recovered in time to climb to the apron and push The Lunatic Fringe off the top turnbuckle and onto the ropes. KO was quick to capitalize on the damage, picked up the huge three-count to build momentum toward the May 1 event.
