Rey Mysterio Comments On WWE United States Title Win

Rey Mysterio has spoken of US Title triumph

Rey Mysterio is your new united States Champion, with the ‘Master of the 619’ defeating Austin Theory for the strap on the August 11 edition of WWE SmackDown.

The win makes Mysterio a three time US champ, and the lucha legend commented on his win during an interview with Kayla Braxton on SmackDown Lowdown:

"Today was a roller coaster ride from the moment I arrived to the moment which is now. I was so angry, and my frustration and my anger took over that when I went out and had that match with Austin, I wasn't really thinking about the final consequence, which is [being United States Champion]. My team, the LWO, this ain't my title. This is our title. This is the LWO's title," said Mysterio. "Oh my god, this is our unity right here. This is what unites us together. When you have guys like Austin Theory, which we all run across at some point in our lifetime, you have to put an end to that, and I think tonight was the perfect night to put an end to Austin Theory.”

Mysterio has held seven different championships in his time with WWE, and this recent win means that Rey has held a major American championship in the 90s, 00s, 2010s, and now the 2020s, with Mysterio also holding gold during his time in WCW.
