New WWE United States Champion Crowned At WWE Hell In A Cell

Baron Corbin is the new WWE United States Champion, capturing his first title in WWE at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.

The former NFL player in Corbin won the title in a triple threat match, as Tye Dillinger had been added to the match earlier in the evening by Smackdown General Manager Daniel Bryan. The champion going into the match, AJ Styles, ended up not factoring into the decision of the match.

AJ and Tye counter each other's finishers before AJ locks in the Calf Killer, Corbin breaking it up by dragging Tye out of the ring. AJ hits a diving forearm to the outside before Corbin sends him into the ring post, then Corbin hits a Deep Six to Tye and chokebreaker to AJ for a near fall. Everyone hits a move before Tye falls on top of Corbin for a near fall, then AJ hits a springboard 450 splash for a near fall. AJ then hits the Phenomenal Forearm before Corbin kicks him out of the ring and pins Tye for the win.

Winner: Baron Corbin pins Tye Dillinger to become WWE United States champion

Despite never holding a title in the WWE or NXT, Corbin wasn't without accolade heading into Sunday's Championship match. He won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal in his WWE main roster debut match at WrestleMania 32 in 2016, and also won this year's Money in the Bank match. He was defeated in record fashion by Jinder Mahal when he tried to cash in.
