Juice Robinson became a two-time IWGP US Champion at Wrestle Kingdom 13 when he defeated Cody Rhodes to regain the strap.
Cody got off to a hot start, baiting Juice by playing up his injured meniscus tear in order to get the advantage. From there, Brandi Rhodes got involved, wiping out Juice with a spear and following up with a barrage of punches. Brandi was moved away from ringside as a result of her interference. Cody hit Juice with Cross Rhodes and Pulp Friction, but Juice managed to kick out of both moves. Juice turned things around by countering the Disaster Kick with a Left Hand of God. Two Pulp Frictions later and Juice was the new IWGP US Champion.
