Chris Jericho pictured covered in thumb tacks after Extreme Rules

Published 2 Comments

Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho took part in the WWE's first ever 'Asylum Match' last night at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.

The match consisted of a variety of weapons being used inside a steel cage match, with a mop, nunchucks, potted plant, straightjacket, a kendo stick, and a two-by-four plank of wood with barbed wire wrapped around one end all about the availability of the two superstars locked inside the cage. 

There was one other weapon that was hidden, however, with hundreds and hundreds of thumbtacks sitting inside a bright red bucket. And Chris Jericho had the misfortune of being on the receiving end of them.

Jericho lost the match after getting slammed into the tacks on his back by Ambrose, before the Lunatic Fringe then hit Dirty Deeds to get the pin in the middle of the structure as Jericho lay on the ground battered and bruised with blood dripping from his body thanks to all the pins stuck in him.

After the match, several images were posted onto social media of Jericho and his human pin-cushion of a body.

And if you didn't see it last night, here's a clip of Jericho getting powerbombed onto the tacks. Ouch.

It didn't stop there though, as a WWE legend made his presence felt back stage. Mick Foley uploaded a photo of himself with Chris Jericho behind the scenes, with an amazing picture of Foley giving a thumbs up to Y2J's thumbtack-ridden arm. 

Hot damn, that is some top notch trolling. Just look at the scowl on Jericho's face and you can tell there are so many places he would rather be than with a big bearded Foley taking a picture with him. One of those places is probably the medical room to get rid of all the tacks.

The Asylum Match itself was a bit of a letdown, with the very slow-paced wrestling not exactly being intuitive to the nature of the match. It was also at least five minutes too long as they tried to use all the weapons available rather than keeping it short, sharp and destructive.

If the asylum match does become a part of WWE's future matches, hopefully they learn from the mistakes from this time out.
