After illegally getting involved in the No Disqualification match between Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship last week and helping Owens retain the WWE Universal Title again, RAW kicks off with Chris Jericho as Jericho welcomes everyone to The Highlight Reel. Jericho first introduces his guest and best friend as WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens joins Jericho on The Highlight Reel. After making fun of American Thanksgiving, the champion says that he is “thankful” for being the WWE Universal Champion and he is “thankful” for being the “face” of Monday Night RAW. Owens then says that, last but not least, he is “thankful” for his best friend Chris Jericho.

The best friends then hug before Jericho takes his turn, saying that he is “thankful” for Kevin Owens, he is “thankful” for his scarf, and he is “thankful” for Seth Rollins. Jericho then explains that Rollins proved to him that Seth is the “epitome of a stupid idiot” before saying that Owens beat Rollins “fair and square” last week. Jericho then claims that, last week, it wasn’t Chris Jericho wearing a Sin Cara mask, it was “Sin Cara wearing a Chris Jericho mask”. Owens then says that he had Seth Rollins right where he wanted him last week before the champion says that, after receiving a powerbomb on the ring apron, Seth Rollins is not medically cleared to be on RAW tonight.

This brings out United States Champion Roman Reigns, who makes his way to the ring to confront Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. Roman tells the best friends that Kevin Owens as the WWE Universal Champion is a “huge joke”. Owens responds by saying that the only “joke” he sees around here is Roman Reigns calling himself “the guy” before Roman says that Owens is just “a guy” who needs a lot of “help”. Reigns explains that Owens needs “help with everything” but Owens argues that he doesn’t “need” Chris Jericho. Roman then says that he disagrees, pointing out that, if it wasn’t for Chris Jericho, Owens would not be the WWE Universal Champion right now.

Jericho then intervenes, clicking his pen as he gets ready to put Roman Reigns on the List of Jericho. However, this is when Kevin Owens would shout at his best friend, telling Jericho to “shut up” before telling Reigns that he can’t talk to him like that. Owens then threatens to powerbomb Roman on the ring apron like he did to Seth Rollins last week and Roman responds by challenging Kevin Owens to a match tonight and, if he wins, then gets a shot at the WWE Universal Title at Roadblock: End of the Line! Owens then accepts the challenge, saying that Reigns is going to be on The Kevin Owens Show before Roman offers a “spoiler alert”, saying that he is going to kick Owens’ “ass” tonight.

Following a confrontation on The Highlight Reel earlier in the night, RAW would see a Champion vs. Champion match as United States Champion Roman Reigns would go one-on-one with WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens in a non-title match with the stipulation that, if Roman Reigns wins, then he will get a shot at the WWE Universal Title at Roadblock: End of the Line in just under three weeks. Before the match begins, Kevin Owens would attack Roman Reigns and this would give Owens the early advantage once the match officially gets underway, sending Reigns into the steel steps on the outside. The United States Champion would repeatedly battle back with both champions trading blows throughout the match.

Later in the match, Kevin Owens would fail to put Roman Reigns away after a super kick before Owens heads to the top rope, but Reigns catches the WWE Universal Champion with a couple of right hands. Owens then fights Reigns on the top rope before Roman blasts Owens with the Superman Punch, knocking Owens out of the ring! Owens manages to pull himself to his feet and Roman sizes Owens up before catching Owens with another Superman Punch. Roman then rolls Owens back into the ring, looking for the Spear, but Owens counters with a kick only for Reigns to power through, blasting Owens with the Spear, pinning the WWE Universal Champion to earn himself a shot at the WWE Universal Title on December 18 at Roadblock: End of the Line!
