This was for Jericho’s Intercontinental Championship.
This was an awesome sprint of a match. Rey took the fight to Jericho right away, and it set an awesome tone and pace for the whole deal. From there, they integrated the sequences that showcased their excellent chemistry into more of a compact brawl structure. Those two components gelled surprisingly well and made for yet another excellent chapter in their fantastic story in 2009. Jericho messed with Rey’s mask to distract and make him easy prey for the Codebreaker. (****)
