WWE fans witnessed some exciting matches in the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, which was aired from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, on 5 December. In the main card Chris Jericho challenged Roman Reigns for the US Championship, while in another fight Seth Rollins squared off with the Big Show.
The show kicked off with Rollins entering the ring and calling out to Triple H for a fight, but the Hunter did not show up. Rollins then said he could not defeat Kevin Owens – Triple H had helped Owens secure the Universal Championship – when Chris Jericho was part of the equation.
Next, Owens stepped into the ring. Rollins asked Owens as to how his friendship with Jericho was going, to which the latter said he has fought with Jericho and sometimes even friends fight and that he does not realise it as he has no friends. Owens then said he deserved the title and the only reason Reigns beat him last week was because he was distracted thinking about the well-being of Jericho, who was attacked by Rollins.
