Once more, with feeling. Sunday night at “Payback 2017”, Chris Jericho won the US Title for a second time in quite the surprise. After announcing that he was leaving for the latest Fozzy tour, it was clear that he wouldn’t be around much longer. That didn’t stop him from defeating Kevin Owens for the title in a “Wrestlemania XXXIII” rematch though. Now it’s just over 24 hours later and another match has been set.
Opinion: This is about as obvious as you can get and there’s nothing wrong with that. As soon as Jericho won the title back, the common guess was that he’d be losing it again almost immediately. While it might seem like a rash decision to change the title back just for the sake of Jericho losing it almost immediately, it did give “Payback 2017” a much needed shot in the arm.
Do you think Jericho retains the title? Will Styles win the title later this month? Let us know in the comments below.
