Welcome back to “Huge Crowd Reactions in Wrestling.” This series is basically an excuse for us here at Nerdopotamus to revel in some of the moments that made us lose our minds. I mean, we’re all pretty huge wrestling fans. We live for those huge crowd reactions. Even as at-home viewers, those are the moments we crave. We want to be on the edge of our seats, or even out of them entirely.

With Triple H headed to the main event of WrestleMania, and Chris Jericho working opposite AJ Styles week after week, I thought it was finally time to go with this legendary moment from Monday Night Raw. If you’re a longtime fan of both wrestlers, then you know where I’m headed. Y2J was still pretty new to the WWF. Triple H was the company’s Champion, and at the top of his game.
That’s why it caught everyone watching off guard when Jericho got the three count, and won the WWF Championship. They figured there was no way Triple H could lose the title to Y2J on an episode of RAW. Not a chance. Simply not possible.
Well, as it turns out, all those who questioned it, were completely right. Once The Game recovered enough to realize what happened, he grabbed Earl Hebner, the referee who counted his shoulders to the mat, and intimidated the poor guy into admitting that it was a fast count. Hebner then reversed the decision, which is why The Man of 1,004 Holds does not get to officially claim that title win to his credit.
It’s still an amazing moment, however. The crowd absolutely explodes when Jericho gets the three count. I don’t know if it was due to love for him, or hate for Triple H, but they were most definitely hyped AF.
NOTE: The first video features the whole match, while the second features the pin fall, and the huge pop Y2J received.
THIS SERIES OF ARTICLES IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY MARK OUT ENTERTAINMENT
We here at Nerdopotamus are thrilled to have joined forces with Mark Out, and its owner Anthony Iovino.
Our goal is to present you all with more quality wrestling-based content. That’s why our first venture together will be the Nerd/Out Top 100 Wrestlers of the Year. We have formed a committee. The selection process has begun. The qualifying period is from WrestleMania 31 to WrestleMania 32.
That doesn’t mean it will be limited to WWE, to be clear. The performer’s promotion matters as much as their gender, which is not all. The only thing that matters is their ability as a professional wrestler.
Numbers 100-91 will be published on April 4th, 2016. From that point on, we’ll drop another ten numbers every day, until we are finished on the 13th.
We hope you all join us!
