Jeri-Show was a villianous professional wrestling tag team consisting of Big Show and Chris Jericho, which competed in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) promotion.[1]

The duo made their debut in July 2009 at WWE's Night of Champions pay-per-view event, where Jericho replaced the legitimate injured Edge with Show as his tag team partner in his defense of the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship (which was made by the unificated World Tag Team Championship and WWE Tag Team Championship).[5][6]

Throughout the remainder of 2009, Jeri-Show were involved in several highly promoted feuds and angles, as well as defending the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship and challenging for the World Heavyweight Championship.[7] The duo also headlined two of WWE's pay-per-view events during their short tenure together, with the first being at Survivor Series[8] and the second at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.[9]

History[edit]

Unified WWE Tag Team Champions (2009–2010)[edit]

At The Bash on June 28, 2009, Jericho and his partner Edge, both villains, won the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship (which consisted of the World Tag Team Championship and the WWE Tag Team Championship) as surprise entrants in a tag team match.[10] When Edge suffered an injury shortly thereafter which left him unable to wrestle, Jericho exploited a contractual loophole that allowed him to choose a new partner to replace Edge so that Jericho's reign could continue uninterrupted, while insulting Edge for being injury prone.[11][12]

On July 26 at Night of Champions, Jericho revealed fellow villain Big Show as his new tag team partner and they defeated Legacy members Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase to retain the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship, thus allowing Show (who was from the Raw brand) and Jericho (who was from the SmackDown brand) to appear on both brands.[13] Jeri-Show would then feud with Cryme Tyme (JTG and Shad Gaspard), which culminated in a successful title defense for Jeri-Show at SummerSlam on August 23.[14][15] Jericho and Show would then feud with Montel Vontavious Porter and Mark Henry, which would also result in another successful title defense for Jericho-Show at Breaking Point on September 14 against the challengers.[16] Next, Jeri-Show would move on to feud with Batista, who then challenged for the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship with Jericho's rival Rey Mysterio at Hell in a Cell on October 5, where resulted in another successfully title defense.[17]

On the October 5 episode of Raw, Jeri-Show would begin a feud with Shawn Michaels and Triple H of D-Generation X (DX) following a loss in a non-title match.[1] Leading up to Bragging Rights, Jericho was named as a captain for Team SmackDown while Show joined Team Raw, which was captained by DX.[1] At Bragging Rights on October 25, Show turned on Team Raw when he attacked his teammates Kofi Kingston and Triple H, resulting in Jericho getting the win for Team SmackDown.[18] Show would then reveal that his motives for aiding Team SmackDown was so that he would be granted a title shot against SmackDown's World Heavyweight Champion The Undertaker, while Jericho would insert himself into the title match as well after beating Kane.[1] At Survivor Series on November 22, The Undertaker managed to retain his World Heavyweight Championship after Jericho and Show turned on each other during the triple threat match.[19] Jeri-Show would then continue their feud with DX and on December 13 at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, the 140-day reign of Jeri-Show as Unified WWE Tag Team Champions came to an end when DX came out victorious in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs match.[20] On the December 14 episode of Raw, Jeri-Show won a Slammy Award for "Tag Team of the Year", while that same night they used their rematch clause against DX, who quickly intentionally disqualified themselves and retained Unified WWE Tag Team Championship (as a result, Jericho, from the SmackDown brand, could not appear on Raw as he was no longer a Unified WWE Tag Team Champion).[21][22] DX granted Jeri-Show yet another rematch for the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship with the additional stipulation that Jericho had to "leave Raw forever" if Jeri-Show lost, which they did on the January 4, 2010 episode of Raw, marking the end of Jeri-Show.[2]

After their breakup, Edge made his return at the 2010 Royal Rumble match to feud with Jericho.[23] Meanwhile, Show would go on to win the Unified WWE Tag Team Championship back from DX when he teamed with The Miz, forming ShoMiz.[24] Jericho would eventually gain access on Raw again when he was drafted to the Raw brand through the 2010 WWE draft.[25]

Occasional teaming (2012–2016)[edit]

On the July 9, 2012 episode of Raw, Jeri-Show (as villains) reunited for one-time to take on John Cena and Kane in a tag team match, which they lost by disqualification.[26]

On the September 5, 2014 episode of SmackDown, Jeri-Show (as fan favorites) had a one-night reunion, competing in a ten-man tag team match that consisted of themselves teaming with John Cena, Mark Henry and Roman Reigns against Kane, Seth Rollins and The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan and Luke Harper, which Jeri-Show's team won by disqualification after The Wyatt Family broke up Cena's STF on Rollins and refused to stop their assault on Cena.[27]

On the January 28, 2016 episode of SmackDown, Show helped Jericho, Reigns and Dean Ambrose from a Wyatt Family assault, having a one night reunion for Jeri-Show.[28]
