Kevin Owens vs Chris Jericho: WWE United States Championship

Kevin Owens  vs. Chris Jericho: Singles match for the WWE United States Championship If Jericho wins the title, he will be transferred to SmackDown.Payback is defined as “an act of retaliation” — how fitting for this United States Championship WrestleMania rematch between former best friends Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens, who claimed the star-spangled title from Jericho at The Ultimate Thrill Ride.

As the story infamously goes now, Jericho and Owens ran roughshod over Raw for months, having one another’s back en route to Owens becoming a dominant Universal Champion and Jericho keeping a stranglehold on the United States Title. However, KO flipped the script when he betrayed and brutalized Jericho during their “Festival of Friendship” on Raw. The six-time World Champion would return and cost Owens his Universal Title at WWE Fastlane, but The Prizefighter has recaptured the last laugh. Owens overcame his now-bitter foe at WrestleMania 33, taking Jericho’s United States Title following a savage Powerbomb on the ring apron.

What’s next for these former friends-turned-archrivals? Payback, in every sense of the word. Can Owens put the definitive period on his conflict with Jericho and retain the United States Championship? Or will the curator of The List retaliate and pry another title from The Prizefighter’s hands?

Find out at WWE Payback, streaming live Sunday, April 30, at 8 ET/5 PT, on the award-winning WWE Network.
