– WWE has announced that Dean Ambrose will defend his United States Title in a 20-man battle royal during tonight’s RAW from Albany, New York. The match was ordered by The Authority.
Triple H tweeted about the match:
“Just announced for 8pm on Raw Epic 20 man over the top rope battle Royal for the US Title ….. #Raw #BestForBuisness”
Wow…. I love that they are giving the U.S title some attention, but having a 20 man battle royal is just crapping all over whatever reputation that the title has. I expect Ambrose to retain, but can’t say I am excited for it at all.
