Rey Mysterio is once again the United States champion.
Originally, Humberto Carillo was set to challenge AJ Styles for the title tonight on Raw. However, the O.C. jumped Carrillo as he made his way to the ring and was unable to compete. Ricochet, Randy Orton, Drew McIntyre and Rey Mysterio all came out and challenged Styles to a United States title match.
The four eventually competed in a fatal four way match, with the winner set to face AJ Styles immediately after the match. Orton had the match won, but Anderson and Gallows pulled him out of the ring. That allowed Mysterio to pin Ricochet to win the match.
AJ Styles proceeded to dominate in their title match that followed. Mysterio made a comeback, but the O.C. cut him off. They were sent to the back as the match continued. Towards the end, there was a ref bump that allowed the O.C. to come back out and attack Mysterio. This brought back Orton, who cleared the ring and took out Styles with the RKO. Mysterio followed with the frog splash for the win.
This is Mysterio’s second reign with the championship. AJ Styles had held the title for 134 days, defeating Ricochet back at Stomping Grounds on June 23.
