U.S. Champion Rusev def. Zack Ryder

Zack Ryder vs. Rusev: Raw, May 30, 2016

Long Island Iced-Z aims to make a statement against the dominant United States Champion.

Last Memorial Day, Zack Ryder rolled the dice and answered John Cena’s U.S. Open Challenge. He fell short at the time, but having tasted success at WrestleMania, the revitalized Ultimate Broski threw himself back into the mix against the current U.S. Champion Rusev in a non-title match on Raw. Unfortunately, this match went the same way as the last one: A heartfelt effort ended in defeat, in this case at the receiving end of an Accolade.

All of which was enough to provoke Rusev to declare his superiority over the entirety of the USA. Titus O’Neil wasn’t convinced, however. The Big Deal got in Rusev’s face for the second time in four days, only this time he followed through and socked the champion in the face. Alas, Rusev stopped short of retaliation, but a little persistence may go a long way yet for O’Neil.
