In the second match of the main card at WrestleMania, former best friends met in a match for the United States Championship, and Kevin Owens was victorious, thanks to a move that's become synonymous with his time in WWE.

Earlier in the match, Jericho reversed a Pop-up Powerbomb into a Codebreaker, but Owens managed to get just ONE FINGER on the bottom rope to break the three count. After that, Owens outsmarted Jericho and got him into position for the dreaded apron powerbomb.
This is the first United States Title reign for Owens, who has previously held the Intercontinental Title and was the Universal Champion for over seven months. Jericho is rumored to be leaving the WWE soon to go on tour with his band Fozzy, but it's currently unknown when he'll be making his exit from the company.
