Of all the titles Chris Jericho has won, the United States Championship isn’t one of them. But on Raw, he finally got a chance to win … it. Alas, he was unable to wrest the championship from a banged-up Roman Reigns, who was both a step slow after his Hell in a Cell Match and facing two-on-one odds with WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens flanking Jericho at ringside.
KO gave Jericho a big ol’ window of opportunity by shoving Reigns face-first into the turnbuckle while the ref’s back was turned, and it seemed for a while like Jericho would be able to capitalize. Reigns, as he does, fought his way back, escaping the Walls of Jericho, Lionsault, Codebreaker and Walls of Jericho again, though Owens jumped him to cause the disqualification after Reigns hit his fateful Spear. And then (!) Seth Freakin’ Rollins finally made his entrance, driving Jeri-KO away before sharing a long, pointed staredown with Reigns while the WWE Universe exploded with excitement. That’s what we call a trick and a treat.
