  27. Clock Icon3:12 am

    They come close, but nobody can get Strowman over the top rope.

    Chris Jericho Is No. 2

    The U.S champion heads to the ring as Cole welcomes Jerry Lawler back to the commentary table. It might be a good idea to just bring him in for special occasions. People wouldn't get tired of him.
