Raw is live and it starts off with Chris Jericho marching to the ring to deliver some horrible news to the WWE Universe . Apparently the “List of Jericho” has been stolen and it has left the former six time WWE Champ heart broken as he refuses to wrestle in tonight’s Triple Threat Match until it is found. Out comes Jericho’s best friend and the current and longest reigning WWE Universal Champion, Kevin Owens.  He says he doesn’t care about the list but he cares about Chris so he will help him find the “List of Jericho” after they take care of Seth Rollins tonight. Jericho stands his ground and out comes to Raw Commissioner, Stephanie McMahon. She vows to get the list back for Chris but says he needs to focus on his match tonight. Cue Seth Rollins music and guess what, he has the list. Seth reveals that both Stephanie and Kevin Owens are on the list but since he likes the list he will give it back, all Jericho needs to do is come get it. Chris leaves the ring determined to get his list back as KO and Steph look on.
