WWE Stomping Grounds is this Sunday and now we have another title match added to the mix.
The Miz, Cesaro, Bobby Lashley, Ricochet, and Braun Strowman battled for the #1 contender spot for the United States Title. Samoa Joe is the current champion and he has remained untested so far.
This was an elimination match and Cesaro was taken out by Strowman after he bodyslammed Lashley onto him. Then Braun took out Lashley with a powerslam.
Braun was taken out by Lashley and Cesaro and then Ricochet hit a 630 and everyone covered him the eliminate Strowman. Samoa Joe loved seeing this and laughed hard while he sat at ringside.
Ricochet and The Miz were the final two left and after The Miz worked on Ricochet’s legs for a while, The One And Only nailed a 630 and won the match.
Now Samoa Joe will defend the WWE United States Title at WWE Stomping Grounds. After the match, Joe tried to attack Ricochet, but he turned it around and hit a splash on Joe to get his heat back to close out the statement.
