During broadcasts of Monday Night RAW via USA Network, the superstar Seth Rollins managed to retain the United States Championship after defeating Austin Theory hand in hand after the exchange of the Money in the Bank.
This was the main matchup of the day on Monday in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. After an ambush by Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins was hurt before an Austin Theory who decided to corner him with his starting opportunity. “The A-Town” made its exchange official from the briefcase and “The Visionary” positioned himself in the corner for the fight.
The matchup saw Theory dominate in the opening moments, but Rollins managed to counter him by catching him in a Pedigree. When Austin was about to get the victory, Bobby Lashley decided to push the referee outside the ring and directed his anger at “The A-Town”. A sore Theory reached the ring before the count of ten only to receive the Curb Stomp that allowed Rollins continue reigning with the belt.
Thus, Seth Rollins retains the WWE United States Championship in his second starting defense. “The Vision” extends his reign to 28 days from his victory on the Monday Night RAW season opener. Rollins defeated former champion Bobby Lashley on October 10 in Brooklyn to lift this title for the second time in his career.
On the other hand, Austin Theory sees the end of a 128-day cycle as Mr. Money in the Bank. “The A-Town” also makes history by becoming the first briefcase owner to opt for a non-world title for his title fight. Theory joins names like John Cena, Baron Corbin, Damien Sandow and Braun Strowman who also failed to redeem the briefcase in previous years.
