Chris Jericho vs. Fandango

Fandango is out next, accompanied by Summer Rae. Some of the members in the crowd are trying their darndest to get a Fandango-ing happening, but it's not really catching on. Jericho is not impressed by Fandango's entrance, feigning sleep in the corner.
The bell rings and both men begin circling each other. This crowd is solidly behind Jericho. They lock up and Jericho backs Fandango into the corner and breaks cleanly. They do it again, but Jericho slaps Fandango, and gets a shove in return. Fandango takes Jericho down with a shoulder block, but eats a dropkick, then a back elbow from Y2J. Fandango drops out to the floor, and Jericho is quick to follow.

Winner: Chris Jericho
Josh Matthews is backstage with Sheamus. He asks how he'll be able to drag Mark Henry around the ring, touch all four corners, and win his strap match tonight? Sheamus repeats pretty much everything Josh just said before saying that he hits back. He says at Extreme Rules, the World's Strongest Man will find out exactly what happens when the Celtic Warrior goes Extreme.
