On the August 4, 2009, edition of Friday Night Smackdown, Chris Jericho competed in a singles match against JTG of Cryme Tyme. JTG shockingly won the match, much to the surprise of fans.
The former WWE Superstar spoke to Sportskeeda, where he discussed his WWE run. During the interview, JTG reminisced about his match against Chris Jericho on Smackdown. JTG revealed that Jericho was the one who came up with the idea of losing to him.
“I actually think it might have been Chris Jericho’s idea. My mom actually came to that show, she bought her friends. I’ll say about 80% of the roster doesn’t know what they’re doing that day until they get there. I believe Jericho actually told me the good news. He was like, ‘me and you tonight, kid, you over!’ I’m thinking he’s messing with me, I’m like, ‘okay!’ and then a writer came up to me and confirmed it.”
Cryme Tyme could not defeat Chris Jericho and Big Show at SummerSlam 2009 for the Unified Tag Team titles.
