Rey Mysterio will surrender the United States Championship next week
Rey Mysterio’s United States Championship victory two weeks ago has turned out to be something of a hollow one, and not just because Samoa Joe had his shoulder up on the deciding pinfall. The Ultimate Underdog suffered a separated shoulder during Joe's post-match beatdown, leaving the status of his reign somewhat uncertain. On Raw, it was revealed that Mysterio’s stint as titleholder would end before it began, as the injury will force him to relinquish the title on Raw next week. This was of great satisfaction to Joe, who emerged in the wake of the announcement to claim that he would be waiting to take back what was rightfully his.
