WWE has continued the storyline between Chris Jericho and his former best friend Kevin Owens at this weekend live events. They issued the following statement regarding a recent attack to Jericho by the hands of Owens:
REGENSBURG, Ger. – On Saturday night, Universal Champion Kevin Owens laid waste to his former friend, the already injured United States Champion Chris Jericho, in the midst of WWE Live’s Road to WrestleMania Tour through Germany.
Due to injuries sustained last week at the hands of Owens during the “Festival of Friendship” on Monday Night Raw, Jericho was deemed unable to compete on the tour. Nevertheless, the outspoken Superstar made a surprise appearance on crutches before the crowd in Regensburg, interrupting The Prizefighter’s imminent contest against Roman Reigns. Unamused, KO proceeded to unleash another ruthless attack on his erstwhile best friend.
Will Owens suffer any fallout for his actions? How will this affect Jericho on The Road to WrestleMania? Find out Monday night at 8/7 C on Raw, when The Prizefighter’s WWE Fastlane opponent, Goldberg, is scheduled to appear.
