– As noted, Alberto Del Rio became a two-time WWE United States Champion after defeating Kalisto at last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings in Lafayette, Louisiana. Kalisto had just won the title from Del Rio on Monday’s RAW.
WWE spoiled the title change on their website with this announcement:
Just one night after losing the United States Championship to Kalisto in a dramatic loss on Raw, Alberto Del Rio regained the coveted title from the masked luchador during Tuesday night’s SmackDown taping. The two Superstars, whose rivalry is rapidly evolving into one of WWE’s fiercest, battled to another climactic finish on Thursday’s hottest show — now on USA Network — but this time the underdog fell to The Essence of Excellence. The contest was not without it’s controversy, however, as The League of Nations factored into the outcome.
Tune in to SmackDown this Thursday night at 8/7 C on USA Network to see how the United States Championship changed hands.
