LAS VEGAS – Happy Father’s Day? Not for Titus O’Neil. At the greatest WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view in history, United States Champion Rusev made O'Neil tap out to the Accolade before humiliating him in front of his sons.

For several weeks, the intensity had built toward an epic U.S. Title showdown between the two tough-as-nails Superstars, including a ruthless assault by The Bulgarian Brute on his No. 1 contender this past Monday on Raw, and a counter-assault by O’Neil on Thursday’s SmackDown.

Before their pay-per-view contest began, though, Rusev played some early mind games by walking over to O’Neil’s kids at ringside. This lit the fuse to the explosive match as the two Superstars started brawling outside the ring. Once things moved inside the squared circle, The Bulgarian Brute took control, wearing down his challenger. However, Titus battled back to gain the advantage, scoring several near-falls and even escaping the Accolade before it could be locked in. After another excruciating exchange outside the ropes, though, the United States Champion finally cinched in the Accolade and made Titus tap out.


Following his victory, Rusev delivered O’Neil the hardest blow of all after the bell. As the war-torn Rusev lay on the canvas, The Bulgarian Brute walked over to his fallen challenger’s children and shouted at them,  declaring that their father  was “a loser.”


With that one absolutely deplorable comment, Rusev propelled an already personal showdown to a whole other level. Will Titus O’Neil have a response? Find out Monday night at 8/7 C on Raw.
