From best friends to bitter enemies, Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens will unleash their anger against each other at WrestleMania, with Jericho’s U.S. Title on the line.
Both Superstars enter the championship grudge match fueled by rage, with recent acts of betrayal and retribution fresh in their minds.
Jericho spent months protecting The Prizefighter’s Universal Championship reign, only for Owens to torch their friendship on the Feb. 13 edition of Raw. Owens savagely smashed Jericho’s head through a TV monitor and powerbombed him onto the ring apron, resulting in a slew of injuries for Jericho.
After making quick work of a returning Gillberg, The Prizefighter brutally assaults the man who was thought to be his best friend.
The keeper of The List of Jericho then repaid KO’s cruelty at WWE Fastlane, distracting Owens and costing him the one possession that he cherished above all else, the Universal Title. Owens has since vowed to make Jericho suffer for his intrusion, promising to take the prestigious United States Championship in the process.
With that, the foundation is set for a malicious battle on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Featuring a dangerous mix of bruised egos and bad intentions, it remains to be seen just how far the once-inseparable pals will go to get the last word.
