Juice Robinson is the new IWGP United States Champion coming out of Capital Collision on Saturday night in Washington, D.C.

The latest addition to The Bullet Club won the championship for the third time defeating Hiroshi Tanahashi, Jon Moxley, and Will Ospreay in the main event after pinning Ospreay.

The match culminated after Tanahashi hit a High Fly Flow to the floor, putting Moxley through a table and taking the two out of the match.

Ospreay set up for the Hidden Blade to Robinson, who used the referee to stop Ospreay. With the referee distracted, Robinson landed a low blow and hit his new finisher to pin Ospreay.

Robinson cut a promo on the crowd calling himself ‘Rock Hard’ and the ‘Booster’ of The Bullet Club.

In other news, Lio Rush made an unadvertised appearance, stating he was not cleared to return yet but when he is, he is putting the junior heavyweight division on notice. Rush joined Ian Riccaboni and Alex Koslov to call the final two matches of the show.
