WWE Stomping Grounds included seven title matches and we had one title change during the kickoff show. Becky Lynch was able to retain her Raw Women’s Title against Lacey Evans, but the same was not the same for Samoa Joe.
Samoa Joe put the WWE United States Title on the line against Ricochet at Stomping Grounds. After a great back and forth match which featured plenty of athletic moves from The One And Only, Ricochet was able to hit the 630 and win the WWE United States Title.
This marks Ricochet’s first title reign on the WWE Main Roster. He was previously NXT North American Champion.
After he won the title, the camera followed Ricochet backstage where he received a huge ovation in the Gorilla Position which included a hug from Triple H.
