The next challenger for the U.S. Title has been determined.
It had been advertised for tonight’s WWE Raw that Drew McIntyre and Sheamus would go one-on-one to determine the next challenger to the United States Title. The conclusion of the match saw McIntyre attempt to hit the ‘Claymore’ but Sheamus ducked it and rolled McIntyre up, held the trunks and got the three count.
It is now official that Sheamus is challenging Damian Priest for the U.S. Title at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on September 26th.

- SmackDown Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Bianca Belair
- WWE Championship: Bobby Lashley (c) (w/ MVP) vs. Randy Orton (w/ Riddle)
