MIAMI – After calling out United States Champion Dean Ambrose during the WWE Hell in a Cell Kickoff, Big E Langston certainly proved he was a formidable contender in a brutal contest that ultimately ended with The Hound of Justice intentionally getting counted out to retain the title.

Initially, Ambrose was reluctant to accept Big E’s challenge and for good reason. As the opening bell sounded, Langston immediately used his power to take down Dean Ambrose and score two near-falls. Eager to assert his dominance, Langston remained relentless in his assault on The Hound of Justice. Although Ambrose tried to take advantage with brutal knife edge chops, his massive opponent seemed unfazed and continued to use his strength to his advantage.

The United States Champion found some relief by wrangling his opponent to the outside and using both the ring ropes and steel post to his advantage. With Langston dazed, Ambrose methodically utilized his unorthodox grappling style to keep Big E reeling.

Nevertheless, Langston displayed a great deal of resilience, fending off a couple of attempted sleeper holds and shifting the match back in his favor. Continuing to mount the pressure on the Shield member with high-impact maneuvers, Ambrose tried to walk away from the contest. Big E Langston wasn’t going to let The Hound of Justice escape so easily, however, and he ensured that the clash continue back inside the ring.

Battling back and forth, Langston executed a huge spear through the ropes as Ambrose stood on the ring apron. Both competitors – wounded and battered from the physical contest – tried to recuperate on the outside as the official began to count. Langston was the first to regain his composure and make his way back inside the ring, followed by Ambrose, who staggered to his feet, realized he could escape with the U.S. Title intact, and purposely allowed the official to count him out.

Although Langston was declared victorious, Ambrose grabbed the U.S. Championship and tried to leave the arena. But, before he could escape, Big E captured the champion and executed his patented Big Ending before holding the U.S. Title high for the WWE Universe to see.
