Report by Richard Trionfo, PWInsider.com
We start off tonight’s show with a look back at Sunday’s Survivor Series.
We are live on tape from Bridgeport, Connecticut and your announcers are Matt ‘Thesaurus Striker and Todd Happy Black Friday’ Grisham.
Chris Jericho comes to the ring with his title belts. Jericho says that while everyone attempts to digest their Thanksgiving dinners, they are waiting with bated breath for December 13th when the most dominant tag team of Chris Jericho and Big Show face Degeneration X in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match. Jericho says that December 13th will not be the beginning of the DX title reign, they will never have to deal with DX again. The match is not about moronic catchphrases, sophomoric jokes, or shilling merchandise. It is the most dangerous match ever created in WWE history. There have only been 8 TLC matches in the history of the business. Jericho says that he deals with the facts and that is that Shawn Michaels and Triple H have never been in a TLC match while Jericho has been in two matches. Jericho has succeeded in TLC matches. He says that he is a winner and they will win at TLC. Jericho says that DX are losers because despite their accomplishments, they have never been tag team champions. As long as he holds the titles, Degeneration X never will. Jericho says that he is the best in the world at what he does and he deserves the respect of the hypocrites but he does not get it. He demands respect but Teddy Long proverbially slaps him in the face each time. He wants to know how there can be a number one contender match without him in it. He wants Teddy Long to make it right and put him in the match.
