On Monday night, and with a timestamp which clearly indicates he was watching Raw, Scott Dawson of the Revival Tweeted this GIF of he and partner Dash Wilder’s finishing move, the Shatter Machine. The timing is important, as you’ll recall Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens were in a tag title match at around this time, and they’ve been using a tandem finisher, a Pop-Up Codebreaker, which is quite similar to Dash & Dawson’s...

The man who defeated Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock in the same night to become the first-ever undisputed WWE champion took issue with being subtly jabbed by the Top Guy (more than 24 hours later... Jericho’s a busy man):
Always nice to see the Indy kids disrespecting the ones who came before them. #keepituphttps://t.co/rgxt6ZtaXy— Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho) December 14, 2016
Wilder handled it well...
Our apologies to Marufuji. https://t.co/D8vvk1ROvG— Dash (@DashWilderWWE) December 14, 2016
... pointing to the Japanese star who was using the Codebreaker before Y2J added it to his arsenal back in 2007.
But the last words went to the Revival’s boss, NXT General Manager William Regal:

Who wrapped it up nicely with a call back to another heel Jericho gimmick:
@IAmJericho @ScottDawsonWWE The tens of thousands of us that came before you are all thankful you invented everything Chris.Again,thank you.— William Regal (@RealKingRegal) December 14, 2016
Shut it down here. We’re done.
