It has taken quite sometime for the WWE to find a new United States Champion, but the redheaded Sheamus has finally grabbed the opportunity take the glory.
Dean Ambrose had been the champion for 351 days, and the belt had been sitting with the wrestler every since last year's Extreme Rules pay-per-view until Monday Night Raw.
The setting was a 20-man battle royal, and Sheamus was the victor after a hugely entertaining contest.
The former WWE champion has been quite average recently, and this win might give him the platform to rejuvenate his wrestling career.
"Since I came back from injury all I have been doing is spinning my wheels. Things haven't really gone according to plan," he told the WWE.
"But they do say that every stopped clock is still right twice a day. And in this game it's all about watching, waiting and timing.
"And tonight was the perfect time for the Celtic Warrior to step back into glory."
Ambrose had to defend his championship against 19 other WWE superstars on Monday Night Raw and he failed to do so.
Sheamus had no kind words for his foe post-contest. Looking at the his new championship belt and smiling, Sheamus smirked, "no hard feelings fella."
