Samoa Joe is the new United States champion, having won the title in a fatal four way over defending champion R-Truth, and fellow challengers Rey Mysterio and Andrade.
The match was yet another open challenge from R-Truth, in the spirit of his sudden John Cena idolatry. Mysterio and Andrade answered the challenge just as they did a week ago, with Joe tossing his hat into the ring as well.
Joe scored the win by pinning Andrade with a twisting uranage, after breaking up Mysterio's pinfall attempt on Andrade with a crushing senton that flattened both men.
The title victory marks Joe's first championship win on the main WWE roster.
In Joe's victory promo, he name-dropped Cena during a rundown of all of the things he isn't about and doesn't represent, including his lack of love for the man whose open challenges R-Truth was mirroring.
