WWE Extreme Rules results: Chris Jericho pins Fandango in PPV opener

Chris Jericho pinned Fandango in the pay-per-view opener of the Extreme Rules event tonight (May 19, 2013) in St. Louis.

Let it never be said that Chris Jericho has too much pride or doesn't understand the business of professional wrestling. The former heavyweight champion opened the pay-per-view (PPV) at Extreme Rules tonight (Sun., May 19, 2013) at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri, against his current chief rival Fandango.

It was a rematch of their WrestleMania 29 encounter that saw the dancer roll up the rocker for a surprise victory.

This time, Fandango failed on his roll up attempt and Jericho got his win back, as so many expected him to do. It was a solid match, nothing special, but the commentary team put over the fact that Fandango has finally suffered a pinfall defeat in WWE.

Hey, at least he won on the bigger stage, right?
