- Chris Jericho comes out and says he's the reason that Dean Ambrose isn't at Smackdown tonight after the beating from Raw. Instead, he presents himself as a gift to the crowd before introducing Sami Zayn. Jericho calls Zayn a sore loser for attacking Kevin Owens, and a thief for holding Miz's title above his head. Zayn says he's a good person and Jericho's scarf makes him looks stupid. Miz comes out and says Zayn rode Owens' coattails to the WWE and now Zayn is trying to ride his. Miz says Zayn better never touch his title, which causes Zayn to touch the title. Jericho gets pissed and leaves the show. Zayn challenges Miz to a match, but Miz ducks out of the ring.

Big Cass comes out and says The Vaudevillains look like they just walked off of the set of Sherlock Holmes to solve the case of 'Who's gonna get whooped?'
