Kalisto wins the United States Championship on RAW

Published 2 Comments

Less than two weeks before the Royal Rumble and we have had one major shift ahead of the big event in Cleveland.

The WWE are still throwing up some shocks for us ahead of the start of the Road to WrestleMania and our latest one will surely be met with mixed reviews.

A new champion

Following an interesting match between them on Smackdown that ended in a shock win, Kalisto was given a United States Championship opportunity against Alberto Del Rio.

The two pulled off a fairly extended but entertaining match on Smackdown and tonight's match was made all the more interesting with the title being put on the line.

Kalisto conducted a pre-match interview where he spoke about the heritage of Mexican stars in WWE history and said that Del Rio didn't deserve the title.

When the two finally got in the ring though, they let their actions speak for themselves.

Kalisto came out victorious and ended Del Rio's two and a half month reign as US Champion.

The crowd were certainly happy to see a new champion crowned and Kalisto was ecstatic following his win but his joy could be short lived.

It was announced only 10 minutes after the match ended that Del Rio had called upon his rematch clause for Thursday's episode of Smackdown.

Even if Kalisto leaves Smackdown with the title still around his waist, you get the feeling that this feud will continue.

Going to the Rumble

With the WWE World Heavyweight Championship now being defended in the Royal Rumble match, other titles are set to dominate the other matches at the event.

It is now predicted that the US title match at the Rumble will consist of Del Rio and Kalisto but what about the Tag Team, Diva's and Intercontinental Championships?
