Chris Jericho Responds To West Ham Player's 'Walls Of Jericho' Attempt

Chris Jericho Responds To West Ham Player's 'Walls Of Jericho' Attempt

West Ham goalkeeper Darren Randolph has proved to be pretty handy in between the sticks for the Hammers this season, displacing Adrian as the first-choice shotstopper.

And it also turns out that he's a submission specialists of sorts and displayed his WWE talents in West Ham training recently.

The former Birmingham man was having a bit of a fun in practice and denied to put teammate Michail Antonio in the 'Walls of Jericho' submission - a move synonymous with current United States champion Chris Jericho.

He also then went for the deadly 'Tazzmission' that former ECW and WWF Attitude Era Tazz made famous back in the day, though Samoa Joe uses a similar version of the submission in today's WWE and it is referred to as the 'Coquina Clutch'.

Jericho posted the following brilliant message on Twitter:
