— The show opened with Chris Jericho coming to the ring. He said he was glad that he cost Kevin Owens the Universal Championship at Fastlane, and he demanded to know why Owens betrayed him. Owens came out and said he betrayed Jericho because he was never his best friend, just a tool and he used him. Triple H told him the night he won the title that he had to do whatever it takes to keep it. He looked around and needed a person who was dangerous, experienced, and gullible.
Jericho was a perfect tool, until he outlived his usefulness. He said Jericho’s biggest mistake in his career was costing Owens his Universal Championship. Jericho said his biggest mistake was trusting Owens in the first place. He said he has a lot of friends and asked the fans to cheer him on. Then he challenged Owens to a match at WrestleMania. Owens said he’s going to get his Universal title back, because he’s been promised a rematch whenever he wants, but since Jericho took his title from him, he wants to take the United States Championship from Jericho. Jericho accepted, but said why wait?
Owens ran to the ring and he and Jericho went at it, but Samoa Joe hit the ring to join in the beatdown. Sami Zayn ran out to even the odds, and Jericho cleared the ring with a chair.
