Sunday night at WWE payback, Chris Jericho shocked the world when he defeated Kevin Owens to win the United States Championship. Chris Jericho is now a member of the SmackDown Live roster, and it’s been announced that Kevin Owens will be getting his rematch as he’s set to challenge for the United States Championship tonight.
