Following a post–Fatal 4-Way attack by Alberto Del Rio, Cesaro laid in excruciating pain with injured ribs. As he did, United States Champion Rusev seized the moment and challenged his new No. 1 contender to have their title match right there and then. Displaying incredible defiance in the face of the pain, The Swiss Superman answered the call.
In spite of his absolutely Herculean effort, in the end, The Accolade proved to be too much for the injured Cesaro and he was forced to tap out.
Rusev’s celebration soon would hit a brick wall, however, when he learned he will once again face Titus O’Neil for the United States Title on a special July 4th edition of Monday Night Raw.
