Kevin Owens, is the “new face of America” once again after defeating Chris Jericho on his Smackdown Live! debut.
At Payback just this past Sunday April 30, 2017, Chris Jericho defeated his “former best friend” to become a two time United States Champion. Owens and Jericho have been in a nasty feud for the title and have no respect for each other.
Owens on Smackdown Live! hit Chris Jericho with a pop-up power bomb to defeat Jericho and become a two time United States Champion. It’s hard to believe that Jericho lost his title already but as I have said in the past, Jericho is going on tour with his band Fozzy soon and must take a small leave from the WWE for his tour.
Soon we will see Jericho leave but not just yet as the feud will carry on. Also, this is where ‘The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles will come in to play as he looks to become a United States Champion for the first time in his career. I believe that Styles will soon get involved in the feud and take over in Jericho’s role and defeat Owens to become the United States Champion on Smackdown Live!
