Chris Jericho def. World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio via Disqualification
Chris Jericho left SmackDown with some unfinished business against Alberto Del Rio, and The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla got another chance against the vicious World Heavyweight Champion in Charleston on Raw. It may be that Jericho took Del Rio’s recent chicanery for a lack of heart, but The Essence of Excellence certainly proved Y2J wrong in a brutal, 20-minute contest that may as well have unfolded in a dimly-lit South Carolina alleyway as opposed to a wrestling ring.
Things kicked into high gear after Del Rio countered the Codebreaker and Y2J paid him back in kind, reversing the Cross Armbreaker into a potentially match-deciding Walls of Jericho that was broken up thanks to an attack by Ricardo Rodriguez. With both manager and champion swarming Jericho, things looked dire until the World Title rematch-ready Dolph Ziggler swarmed the ring and flattened Del Rio with the Zig Zag … before giving Jericho one of his own as payment for Jericho’s Codebreaker last Friday.
