Going into Hell in a Cell 2015, the WWE advertised another edition of John Cena’s US Open Challenge. That meant that we didn’t know who his opponent would be going in, allowing for a bunch of awful dirt sheet writers to publish some of the worst articles I’ve ever read in my entire life about Daniel Bryan being the man who would answer said Open Challenge. They were clearly making shit up.
In case you’re not watching, the segment did provide for a return, but it wasn’t Daniel Bryan. It was Alberto Del Rio. That’s right. He’s back.
Not only is he back, but he’s the new United States Champion. Tonight was the night that it all caught up to John Cena. He wasn’t prepared for someone with a pedigree like Alberto Del Rio’s, and he lost the US title because of it.
One more time, for the cheap seats.
The winner, and your NEW UNITED STATES CHAMPION – ALBERTO DEL RIO!!
My only issue with the whole segment is that he’s aligned with Zeb Colter. It’s weird. Ricardo Rodriguez, or GTFO.
