There were people on Reddit who were really hoping Pineapple Pete would win. Uh...what? Not only would that deflate a lot of heat for Jericho coming into a PPV match, but what exactly would that accomplish?
I know Jericho puts over anyone, almost to a detriment back in his WWE days where was eating clean pins against Heath Slater during NXT in 2010, but if you're going to that, at least put over someone who has a bright future.
Pineapple Pete is nothing special, he's been in the indies for awhile so I'm glad he got his shine and opportunity. I am so glad they didn't draw out the match and give Pete any near falls, they gave him a couple punches and a Judas Effect. Jericho tears of the shirt and focuses on the bigger and more important feud. Absolutely perfect booking for myself.
