WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP: BOBBY ROODE vs. MOJO RAWLEY

Bobby Roode recaps his journey to the United States Championship, talking about first it was 8, then it was 4, then it was 2, and the winner was ABSOLUTELY Glorious. He says that the US Open challenge starts now.

We hear the music of complete trash, Mojo Rawley. He comes out and is super intense as usual, and Bobby Roode takes it to him quickly, before Mojo Rawley knocks him out of the ring. Rawley follows Roode out of the ring and starts to stomp on him before power throwing him back in the ring. Roode tries to recover in the corner and Mojo drives his shoulder multiple times into the midsection of Bobby Roode. Mojo runs towards Roode and gets hit with a back elbow. Bobby Roode starts to pick up steam and bounces off the ropes and hits Rawley with a big clothesine and goes for the cover but Rawley kicks out. Rawley bounces off the ropes and gets hit with a big spinebuster by Roode, and goes for the pin, but Rawley kicks out again.

Bobby Roode sets up Rawley for the Glorious DDT, but Rawley hits a back body drop to counter Roode. Rawley hits Roode with a splash in the corner, and then tries again, but Roode moves out of the way, and Roode hooks the head of Mojo Rawley, and hits a modified Glorious DDT for the victory. Thank all that is glorious.
