Bobby Roode Crowned New WWE United States Champion

Tonight's SmackDown saw Bobby Roode defeated Jinder Mahal in the finals of the WWE United States Title tournament to become the new champion.

This is Roode's first title run since coming to WWE's main roster in 2017. The title had been vacant since Dolph Ziggler relinquished it just a few days after winning it at the Clash of Champions pay-per-view in December.

The tournament finals were originally scheduled to take place at the January 28th Royal Rumble pay-per-view but WWE announced on Monday that they were being bumped up a week to the January 23rd SmackDown episode in Washington, DC. WWE changed plans again today as the semi-finals and then the finals were held on tonight's SmackDown in Laredo, TX. Tonight's first semi-final match saw Jinder defeat Xavier Woods before Roode defeated Mojo Rawley. Roode then defeated Jinder in tonight's main event to become the new champion.
