Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Kalisto
WWE United States Championship
Ok, I don’t like ADR stealing the belt right back from Kalisto any more than you do, but let’s all agree on something here: this feud has quickly turned Kalisto into a star. He went from flippy tag team guy to “guy who can credibly beat a former WWE Champion” in TWO MATCHES.
That’s not just a credit to Kalisto’s abilities in the ring, but to Del Rio’s work and selling talents, too.
This is going to be the workrate match of the night, and it’s going to be fantastic.
And hey, if you have complaints about this match or feud… go back and watch some Sin Cara (v1) vs. ADR stuff. This feud will suddenly be HBK vs. Hitman.
I’ll be angry if: ADR wins.
I’ll keep my cool if: Kalisto wins.
I’m expecting…: Lots of League of Nations interference… and some evening-of-the-odds from the midcard faces.
If I booked it: Kalisto wins clean, and moves on to a new feud.
