As seen at Sunday’s (September 15, 2019) WWE Clash of Champions pre-show before the live pay-per-view event in Charlotte, North Carolina on the WWE Network, Styles beat Cedric Alexander to successfully retain the strap. It was a quick match that saw Styles beatdown Alexander after the match.
Styles beat Ricochet to win the United States Title in June at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event in Philadelphia, PA.
Both stars will likely receive new opponents for different feuds heading into the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event on Sunday, October 6, 2019 in Sacramento, California at the Golden 1 Center. It’s possible that WWE continues this program.
This match comes after the two battled on Monday’s RAW in a non-title match.
This program came after Alexander entered the King of the Ring tournament where he defeated Sami Zayn in the first round.
After finding success under the 205 Live banner that included a run as the Cruiserweight Champion, Alexander was drafted to RAW as part of this year’s Superstar Shakeup.
