It's the End of the World As We Know It
We see what led up to tonight's Last Man Standing match between Chris Jericho and Kane. For those of you who've been in a cave, Jericho spilled coffee on Kane, and Kane wanted revenge. Then, it turned out that Kane was actually mad at Jericho for being a "pretty boy." Their feud caused Jericho to release his "animal side." Tonight, one of them has to keep the other one down for a ten count to win the match. Kane and Jericho battle their way backstage, and the production crew screws up, so we end up watching the empty arena for about a minute before they finally switch camera views. They throw one another into a truck parked backstage, which has wood chips in the bed. I wonder what that truck could be for? They also both get a few shots in on Mideon, who was just randomly standing backstage for no apparent reason. They make their way back into the arena, and there's another late camera switch.
Back in the ring, Kane gets some sort of crazy-ass submission hold on Jericho that looks like something out of the Kama Sutra. Jericho loses consciousness, so Kane drops him. After a count of six, Jericho is back up and fighting. Jericho goes down a few more times, and then both men nearly get counted out. Kane lifts Jericho over his head and throws him to the floor outside the ring. I like Jericho, but it's kind of funny to see him being thrown around like a little doll. They battle up to the entrance, where there is the usual equipment scattered about. Eventually, Jericho pushes over this wall of stacked up oil drums on top of Kane. Of course, the barrels are all glued together. As the ref counts, Kane's hand reaches up through the wall and grabs Jericho's ankle, but I guess the ref didn't see it, because he counts Kane out and declares Jericho the winner. JR calls Jericho "the guttiest [sic] kid in the WWF." Good one. This whole match was just sloppy -- I'm guessing because it's hard to make it look like Jericho could have a chance against Kane, given the size differential. How about a Jericho/Angle feud?
