New U.S. Champ Crowned on ‘SmackDown Live’

Buy Me a Coffee at ko-fi.com

Samoa Joe captured the WWE United States Championship last night on SmackDown Live, defeating champ R-TruthAndrade, and Rey Mysterio in a fatal four way match. Truth was attempting to emulate his ‘childhood hero’ John Cena by keeping the U.S. Open Challenge alive but instead of one competitor he got three and that DAMNED NUMBERS GAME cost him the championship. Poor guy. This is Joe’s first main roster championship and his first championship since 2016, when he reigned atop the NXT mountain. While I’m bummed the U.S. Open Challenge under R-Truth didn’t lead to him defending the title in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal or facing John Cena at WrestleMania, we still got a couple of funny segments out of it so not a total loss. Now we can sit back and watch Joe eat folks alive and finally WIN again.
