Chris Jericho won the legendary U.S. Title for the 1st time ever in his illustrious career.
Chris Jericho has always been around the U.S. Title since his days at WCW but he never won the title. Last night, he got another shot at the U.S. Title battling Roman Reigns in a handicap match with his best friend Kevin Owens. Roman Reigns has been dealing with the problem of JeriKO for months and last night was just another chapter in their battle. Heading into the Royal Rumble, Reigns is set to battle one half of JeriKO in Kevin Owens for the Universal Championship. While, Jericho will hang from a cell above the ring.
The notion of this has been bothering Jericho for weeks. If you know Chris Jericho, if something bothers him he will try to figure his way out. In this case, going for the U.S. Title may have been something to get back at Reigns for him having hang in that cell in the sky. The match was back and forth until, Kevin Owens delivered a stunning power bomb on the apron outside to Roman. From there it looked like Roman did’nt have enough to beat Jericho and Owens. Moment’s later, Reigns was hit with the Codebreaker and laid out for the 3 count by Jericho. When it was all said and done we had a new U.S. Champion.
