WWE has a new United States Champion after tonight’s live event in Madison Square Garden.
Rey Mysterio defended the US title on Thursday night at the legendary venue in a match against Andrade. The finish of the match saw Andrade reverse a top rope splash, then hit his Hammerlock DDT finisher to clench the victory.
This is the first title win for Andrade since moving from NXT in April 2018.
The 30-year-old wrestler previously held the NXT Championship one-time, defeating Drew McIntyre for the belt in 2017, and held the title for 140 days.
