However, they defeated The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, a show that continues to be their biggest rival from week to week, according to Showbuzz Daily.
This week’s show kicked off with Chris Jericho and The Jericho Appreciation Society celebrating his Ring of Honor World Championship win. There was a standoff between Daniel Garcia and Jericho which saw Bryan Danielson get involved as well. The main event of the show saw Chris Jericho defeat Bandido to retain the Ring of Honor World Championship.
