WWE RAW REPORT: WHO IS IN THE MAIN EVENT OF CLASH OF CHAMPIONS?, WHO FACES CHARLOTTE ON THE PPV?, THERE IS GOING TO BE A TALKING TO, MATCH 5 OF THE BEST OF SEVEN, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2016-09-12 19:55:00

We are back and it is time for the Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho.

Chris says this was supposed to be the greatest Highlight Reel because it would have had the man who Tom Cruise would have played in the movie about his life, or Brad Pitt.  He is talking about his best buddy and the longest reigning Universal Champion Kevin Owens.  Mick Foley ruined it by putting Kevin in a match against Roman Reigns.  Jericho says when you have the highest of the high, you have to go the other way and the lowest of the low.  Jericho lies down on the carpet and introduces Sami Zayn.

Sami thanks Chris for the great introduction and Jericho asks if he should sing Ole Ole Ole.  The crowd sings Ole.

Jericho says that intro was worthy of Sami.  There is a reason why Owens dumped you and does not look at you in the back.  He asks Sami if he has Kevin's phone number and Jericho says he has it and he won't give it to Sami.

Jericho says he wants to know what happened.  It had to be Sami's fault.  

Sami asks if Jericho really brought him out to talk about Kevin.  The only thing he cares about is the Universal title and he will have it some day.  If you want to bring Kevin up.  If he is your best friend and your brother, you truly are a stupid idiot.

Jericho tells the people to be quiet.  He says that Zayn is like all of them.  He is rude and a name caller.  He says that Sami is a taker while Jericho says he is a giver.  He is giving all of the heathens what they want and need. 

Sami tells Chris the gift of Jericho sucks.  He says the only gift that Kevin gave him was showing him his true colors.  Kevin only cares about himself.

Jericho says that Sami is jealous.  He is jealous that Kevin Owens is the longest reigning Universal Champion.

Sami wants to know if any shred of the old Chris Jericho is there.  It was because of Chris Jericho, Dean Malenko, and Eddie Guerrero that they are doing this.  It is because you are craftsmen.  You are a six time World Champion and the first Undisputed Champion.  Now you are Kevin Owens' bitch.

Jericho asks Sami if he really believes that.  Jericho says he got a text from Kevin Owens telling him what to expect from Sami.  Jericho says he will show Sami the text and hits him with the phone and then hits a Codebreaker.

We go to commercial.
