Sometimes you need your best friends to help you out.
WWE has posted a new video to their YouTube channel, in which they show the full video of the match between Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins from Hell In A Cell 2016. In the match, Rollins challenged Owens for the Universal Championship.
You can see the match below:
Though, to be entirely fair, the third-act twist wasn’t entirely due to the merits of The KO Show’s namesake, as a most unexpected guest star crashed the Cell.
In case you couldn’t guess, that was Chris Jericho, who made his presence felt after Rollins gritted and grounded his way into position to win the match. That in and of itself was a miracle after KO snuffed out Rollins’ early showing by targeting The Architect’s back, ripping off Rollins’ Kinesio tape before savaging him all across the cage. Rollins was able to keep himself in the fight, but when Owens accidentally blasted one of the officials in the face with a fire extinguisher, Jericho took advantage of the briefly open Cell door to lock himself inside and pocket the key.
Rollins quickly dispatched Jericho by sending him crashing into the Cell wall, but the mere presence of The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla left him at an insurmountable disadvantage. Even though he was able to power through his brutalized back to powerbomb Owens through a pair of tables, he couldn’t stop Jericho from hauling the ref away before the pinfall could be counted. And, although he was able to briefly chase Jericho down, he wasn’t able to stop Jeri-KO from ultimately uniting and bringing two steel chairs into the match. And once Owens powerbombed him through those two chairs with Jericho watching on, Rollins wasn’t able to do much of anything.
I actually don’t remember this match that well, but I do remember the Fatal 4-Way match in which Owens won the Universal Championship. I also remember the friendship between Jericho and Owens that lead to their amazing match at WrestleMania in 2017.
