Rey Mysterio Wins The United States Title, Matt Hardy Thanks Fans

Rey Mysterio Wins The United States Title, Matt Hardy Thanks Fans
- As noted earlier at this link, Matt Hardy returned to action on tonight's RAW from Chicago and lost a fairly quick match to Buddy Murphy.


This was Matt's first RAW match in 2019, and his first match since the WWE Super ShowDown Battle Royal in June.

Matt took to Twitter after the loss and thanked fans for the support, noting that he is going through a "confusing period of life" these days.

"Thanks for all the love from around the world regarding my #RAW appearance tonight.. I AM GRATEFUL. I'm going through a tough, confusing period of life right now & I appreciate your support," Matt wrote, also sharing a link to the third episode of his 'Free The Delete" series on YouTube.

- Rey Mysterio defeated AJ Styles to become the new WWE United States Champion on tonight's RAW episode.

The match was originally supposed to be Styles defending against Humberto Carrillo, but The OC attacked Humberto at ringside. This led to Rey winning a Fatal 4 Way over Randy Orton, Ricochet and Drew McIntyre, to become the new #1 contender to AJ. Rey got his title shot right after the Fatal 4 Way. The finish of the title change saw interference from Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, and Orton, who helped Rey take out AJ for the pin. After the match, Rey celebrated with his son Dominick.

This is Rey's second reign with the United States Title. AJ won it back at Extreme Rules on July 14, by defeating Ricochet.

This title change comes after Rey failed to defeat WWE Champion Brock Lesnar on Sunday at WWE Survivor Series, while AJ lost a non-title Triple Threat to WWE NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong and WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.
