Justin Gabriel def. U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro

After weeks of dominant victories over a slew of competitors, United States Champion Antonio Cesaro was left stewing following an upset loss to the dynamic Justin Gabriel on Raw.

Cesaro has made it quite clear to the WWE Universe that he believes all competitors born in the U.S.A. to be beneath him, and even made it a point to proclaim his own greatness in Italian before his match began. Gabriel, however, is a South African and apparently unfazed by Cesaro's foreign elitism, because no sooner had the insults left the "Swiss Superman's" mouth than "The Cape Town Werewolf" flew into action, clearing the ropes with a dive and stunning Cesaro in the match's opening moments. 

The strategy worked, and Cesaro failed to find his rhythm for the remainder of the contest. Gabriel, who fell to Cesaro in a recent contest, used the experience of facing the champion to his advantage, withstanding a brutal barrage from the U.S. Champion before knocking Cesaro off the top rope and connecting with the 450 Splash to earn himself une grande victoire over the elitist foreigner.
