U.S. Champion Roman Reigns crashed “The Highlight Reel” with Kevin Owens
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Depending on whom you ask, Roman Reigns cost Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho a Survivor Series victory. But while that hot take is up for debate, it’s pretty clear that Reigns may well end up costing Owens the WWE Universal Championship if the cards fall in his favor. The Big Dog opened Raw by crashing Owens’ spot on “The Highlight Reel” — originally meant as a Thanksgiving celebration wherein Jeri-KO gave thanks for each other — and inferring that The Prizefighter can’t get through a title defense without Jericho at his side. A rattled Owens was sufficiently goaded into: 1) shutting down Jericho’s attempts to put Reigns on The List of Jericho, 2) flat-out stating he doesn’t need Jericho in his corner, and 3) agreeing to a bout with Reigns where, if “The Guy” wins, he becomes No. 1 contender to KO’s title at Roadblock: End of the Line.
