R-Truth defeated Shinsuke Nakamura on tonight’s WWE SmackDown to become the new WWE United States Champion.
It looked like they may have botched Truth’s roll-up on Nakamura. Truth’s post-match celebration was interrupted by Rusev and Lana, leading to Truth granting a title shot to Rusev. Truth then retained the title over Rusev. Nakamura and Rusev double teamed Truth after the match and beat him down in the middle of the ring.
Truth is now a two-time United States Champion. Nakamura won the title from Rusev on Sunday during the WWE Royal Rumble Kickoff pre-show.
