Chris Jericho defeated Kevin Owens to capture the United States Championship at WWE Payback. He was the surprise winner we were referring to on Saturday when we talked about the big money coming in for Payback. Jericho is set to go on tour with Fozzy for most of the month of May so that is why his win could be seen as a surprise to some.
The match story was that Owens hurt his hands when Jericho kicked the ring steps into them. Later, Owens tried to hit the pop up powerbomb but he couldn’t execute the move because of his injured hands. Owens then submitted to the Wall of Jericho.
