Bobby Roode defends the United States Championship against Rusev tonight on SmackDown LIVE

Rusev challenges United States Champion Bobby Roode next Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE

United States Champion Bobby Roode and Rusev have strong words for each other ahead of their title match next week on SmackDown LIVE.

After winning a Fatal 4-Way Match, Rusev has earned the right to challenge United States Champion Bobby Roode tonight on SmackDown LIVE.

The Bulgarian Brute bested Kofi Kingston, Zack Ryder and Jinder Mahal in an action-packed Fatal 4-Way Match last Tuesday to earn the opportunity to face The Glorious One, then immediately rolled out of the ring to stare down Roode, who was at the announce table.

In a video later that night, Rusev declared that their championship showdown would be Roode’s swan song with the star-spangled title. The champion responded by declaring that even though their showdown may fall on Rusev Day, the outcome of the battle will be nothing short of … GLORIOUS!
