October 22, 2001 - November 12, 2001

Kurt Angle challenged Rhyno for the United States Championship on an edition of Raw. The Olympic hero absorbed two Gores during the match, but would not stay down. He kicked out of the second Gore and slapped on the Ankle Lock, making Rhyno submit. It was Angle's first United States Championship. It was Angle's sixth different singles title, as he had already held the Intercontinental, Hardcore, European, WCW and WWE Championships.
