20-Man US Title Battle Royal Announced For Monday Night Raw

WWE announced (per The Authority) that Dean Ambrose will defend the WWE United States Championship in a 20-man battle royal on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.

The storyline would suggest this is part of Triple H’s retribution following Evolution’s loss to The Shield at Extreme Rules on Sunday night.

    Nothing against Dean, but I’d love to see a change. While ever he is holding it, it’s put on the back burner so The Shield can have story lines as a complete unit

  • Splash

    Ziggler FtW?

  • Chris B

    I on the other hand would love to see Dean win, as a heel he never really defended it, but as a face it’s a symbol of the shields success and continued defiance. That and the authority trying to prize it off him would at least see it fought over more.

  • Rich

    Dean Ambrose is still the champion???

    The fact that I could legitimately ask that says someone else needs the title.

    I can see this being the instrument of the end of The Shield. Put Reigns and Rollins into the match. This will mean that to win the match one of them would have to eliminate the other two and be the fissure in destroying them. I say Reigns wins the title.

  • Dan

    I have a feeling the winner will be the newest addition to evolution.

  • Tom Mayer

    Zack Ryder can fulfill his destiny and join Evolution after winning the US Title again.

  • K!NG

    I see adam rose winning the battle royal… or Rusev

  • Evon Callaway Bitterweed Reese

    He can not come out as the winner. That would be biggest BS of the year.

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I see no point to having the US title anymore. Why not just make like back in the day and merge it with the Intercontinental?

  • Luan Mendonça Rodrigues

    I think this is an excellent move to give the US Title some relevance, award a hard worker from the mid-card, keep the Shield-Evolution feud hot AND not bury Dean Ambrose in the process.
    Maybe we will start seeing more of the US Title with that move.
