Chris Jericho Finally Wins WWE United States Championship
The list, or resume of Chris Jericho has yet another achievement on it — United States champion.
Last night on Raw, Jericho captured the United States championship for the first time in his career in New Orleans. In a two-on-one handicap match, Jericho teamed up with WWE Universal champion and best bud Kevin Owens to defeat Roman Reigns, Jericho did so with his signature Codebreaker finisher.
Y2J became just the seventh person in WWE history to have held a world title, a tag team title, the Intercontinental championship and the United States championship over the course of his career — a feat unofficially known as a grand slam.
The loss snapped Reigns’ first run with the title at 106 days after he won the United States championship in September at the Clash of Champions pay-per-view by defeating Rusev. “The Bulgarian Brute” took to Twitter to playfully congratulate Jericho on his victory.
Jericho busted open his head late in the match on his way to the historic victory.
Jericho first joined WWE in 1999 and has won nearly every major WWE title, including the world heavyweight championship (three times), the Intercontinental championship (nine times) and the world tag team championships (five times).
