A 2-out-of-3 Falls Match for the stars-and-stripes title kicks off WWE Fastlane on the Kickoff.

United States Champion Kalisto will have another opportunity to test himself against decorated former champion Alberto Del Rio, but to retain the title he'll have to defeat The Excellence of Execution in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match on the WWE Fastlane Kickoff.

Though the big title match has been on the books for weeks, the added wrinkle of a 2-out-of-3 falls format came into play days before the showdown, on Feb. 15. Del Rio issued the challenge, which Kalisto accepted on Twitter, after his team prevailed in a Six-Man Tag Team Match. The first Superstar to claim two falls — be it by pin, submission, disqualification or count-out — will leave the WWE Fastlane Kickoff with the stars-and-stripes title.

Since the start of 2016, the U.S. Championship has swung back and forth between Kalisto and Del Rio three times. The masked Superstar originally upset Del Rio to win the U.S. Title on the Jan. 11 edition of SmackDown. Days later, however, The Essence of Execution rebounded and, with the help of his League of Nations teammate King Barrett, reclaimed the championship gold on SmackDown. Yet Del Rio’s game plan for the highflier faltered again at Royal Rumble, where Kalisto regained the championship.

Now they will duke it out once more, this time in a match type known for testing competitors’ endurance. Which Superstar will go the distance and defeat his opponent not once, but twice, to claim the prestigious United States Championship?
