A fatal four way match will determine the next challenger for the United States championship.
WWE announced today that Kofi Kingston, Jinder Mahal, Rusev and Zack Ryder will compete to determine the next challenger for Bobby Roode's United States championship. Here is what WWE.com wrote about the match:
Bobby Roode proved he was willing to be a fighting United States Champion during the Royal Rumble Kickoff on Sunday, issuing an open challenge and defeating Mojo Rawley to hang onto his star-spangled title.
The Glorious One will not have to wait long to find out who will be next to step up and take a crack at him. Four of Team Blue’s brightest Superstars will compete for a U.S. Title opportunity. Who will earn the next chance: The New Day’s Kofi Kingston, Zack Ryder, Rusev or Jinder Mahal?
