NEWARK, N.J. — United States Champion Kofi Kingston clearly doesn't care about odds. In his four months as champion, the explosive Superstar has been outnumbered in Fatal Fourway Matches and Six Pack Challenges and has come out on top each and every time.

Tonight, Kingston beat the odds again, prevailing against The Miz and Jack Swagger in a wild Triple Threat Match. (PHOTOS)

This contest was one of the most challenging of Kingston's young career. The unique stipulation of the Triple Threat Match allows the United States Title to change hands without the champion being pinned. To avoid losing his gold, Kingston had to be aware of the action at all times.

While The Miz and Swagger attempted to work together to defeat Kingston, they simply couldn't put their giant egos aside. When the two cocky Superstars began to battle each other, Kingston waited for an opportunity to strike.

The perfect moment came when Swagger hit Miz with the Gutwrench Powerbomb. Kofi waited for "The All-American American" to put his guard down, then blasted him with Trouble in Paradise and pinned Miz for the victory.

Both Swagger and The Miz have had their eyes on the United States Championship for months and have done whatever they can to get their hands on it. On separate occasions, each Superstar actually stole Kingston's gold. At Hell in a Cell, the fiery Kingston showed his adversaries they'll have to do a lot more if they want to dethrone him.

Will The Miz and Swagger come for Kingston's title again? Find out on the next Raw, Monday night at 9/8 CT on USA Network.
