Chris Jericho Became the new Favorite for Royal Rumble 2017


The latest WWE rumors are buzzing after the WWE Roadblock: End of the Line pay-per-view Sunday night with regards to Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, and the Universal Championship title picture. The ending of the latest Raw-exclusive event certainly raised eyebrows no matter how much it looked like Jericho and Owens are still “best friends.” Not only that, recent movements in the Royal Rumble betting odds seem to further rumors that Jericho will win the big WWE match, even with two other superstars ahead of him on the listing.

At last night’s Roadblock PPV results in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jericho lost via pinfall in his matchup against Seth Rollins, as ProWrestling.net reported. It was mostly a back-and-forth contest, with both competitors looking ready to capture the win. In the end, Jericho lost due to his “friend” Kevin Owens coming to the ring, thinking he was going to help. It only caused a major distraction, which ultimately helped Rollins hit the Pedigree finisher for the win. However, Jericho came to the ring later on during the main event to repay the favor, and that’s what has many people speculating more than before about Y2J’s chances to win the Rumble.

The WWE Roadblock main event featured Kevin Owens defending the WWE Universal Championship against Roman Reigns. Reigns looked ready to capture the title several times and even hit a huge spear to take down Owens towards the end of the bout. However, Chris Jericho came to the ring and got involved. After looking at both competitors carefully, he waited as Owens got up and hit him with the Codebreaker. The ref called for the bell for a disqualification, meaning Owens won and kept his title. Most likely, it’s an indicator that Jericho wants to win Owens’ title and felt taking on Owens was the smarter move. Now Y2J just needs to win the big match in Texas with 29 other competitors also looking to win.
