WWE United States Championship: Andrade (c) w/ Zelina Vega vs. Humberto Carrillo
This has been the feud surrounding the US title for quite a number of months now. Andrade and Humberto Carrillo have been feuding over who is the true big Hispanic star of WWE’s future. Angel Garza and Rey Mysterio have gotten involved time and time again. But in the end the core of this has always been Humberto and Andrade, even before the United States title got involved in it all.
Andrade began this by sending Humberto facefirst into the exposed concrete with a Hammerlock DDT to put him out of commission. He wasn’t seen for weeks as in the meantime Rey tried and failed to deal with the new US Champion. When he did finally come back, it was with a vengeance… after failing to wrestle the gold away from him on two different occasions, Humberto snapped and gave him a Hammerlock DDT onto the concrete just as he’d done to him months prior. This put him off-screen for weeks as he was suspended in real life.
He had to try and fend off Angel Garza in the weeks following but eventually the time came when Andrade came back for a major tag team match. The match saw Humberto pin him and earn another shot at the gold right here tonight. With how things have played out, I kinda can’t imagine that we’ll be getting another one of these at WrestleMania. Atleast not with Andrade still as the US Champ. It’d just, be a lot of times we’ve seen it for this title at that point. Tonight may well be the night… I think I’ll say it. Humberto Carrillo over.
