Chris Jericho returns on SmackDown Live

Kevin Owens and AJ Styles opened this week’s episode of SmackDown Live bickering over the United States championship the former won from the latter at Battleground this past Sunday night in Philadelphia. Owens didn’t want to defend the title, Styles wanted his rematch. An impasse.

Then, a familiar tune hit the loudspeakers:

“It’s the return of Jericho — welcome back, maaaaaan!”

He said he needed a few months to rehab and drink a few beers but he’s back and he wants a US title match too. Styles protested, of course, and when Owens tried to just walk off Commissioner Shane McMahon showed up to figure it all out.

His solution: booking a triple threat match for the title on this very show.

Stay tuned for results on that.
