Austin Theory got a big win at Survivor Series: WarGames as he pinned Seth Rollins for the United States Championship in a triple-threat match.

The title win continues Theory’s rehabilitation after what was widely seen as a poor run with the Money in the Bank briefcase.

Lashley dominated in the early going, with Theory stopping him from winning by pulling the referee out of the ring.

Countering one another’s finishers, and interfering in submissions and pinfall attempts, the match was fast-paced with some fun spots, including Lashley applying the Hurt Lock to Rollins and Theory at the same time.

Theory won the match in a fluke finish after Lashley speared Rollins during a Falcon Arrow attempt, with Theory falling on top on Rollins for the pin.
