Chris Jericho: An Opportunity Well-Taken!

George ButcherCorrespondent ISeptember 8, 2008

The night named Unforgiven seemed to be an unfortunate ppv for Chris Jericho, Or did it ?

After being destroyed by Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho looked to be badly injured and possibly out for a while.

To our surprise, Mike Ademle selected Jericho as the replacement for the injured CM Punk. He entered as the fifth and final  competitor in the World Championship scramble. Not only had he shocked the fans, but he seemed to have shocked the other superstars in the ring.

He came out slowly and finally got to the ring, but when he did he was taken out by Batista early. He layed outside the ring for the following four minutes and looked as if he was a doubt to pick up a pinfall.

Jericho then became oppertunistic and saw a dazed Kane in the ring. He pounced on the oppertunity, and with only seven  seconds remaining he pinned Kane and was the current champion.

Batista was so surprised at the outcome of the match and had no time to pin somebody else. Time was up and Jericho was named the official champion. He had once again become World champion, and what seemed to be a bad night, turned into a career changing one instead.
