Someone asks how it feels to hear the fans singing his theme song, and he says it’s pretty cool and has always enjoyed it. The last question asks him his plans for his match tonight. Zayn says the best gift Jericho could give him is a piece of the old Chris Jericho. Zayn says he will just have to settle for beating Jericho up tonight. Lawler says he’s glad Zayn is a musical person, because he will be singing his swan song tonight when Jericho is finished with him. Lita says Zayn needs the win, but Jericho has been on a role and will get it done. Booker picks Zayn to win.
The panel talks about the feud and the match between The New Day and Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Lita says Anderson’s entire family and his hot Asian wife are in attendance tonight.
