Kalisto Defeats Alberto Del Rio On RAW To Become New WWE United States Champion (Video)

Monday’s edition of WWE RAW was a newsworthy show for a number of reasons, including some new WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view announcements, however it was an unexpected title change that will likely be considered the biggest surprise of the evening.

After defeating WWE United States Champion Alberto Del Rio on last week’s SmackDown in a match set up by John Cena, one-half of The Lucha Dragons tag-team — Kalisto — earned himself a shot at Del Rio’s U.S. title in a rematch set for this week’s RAW.

On Monday’s show in New Orleans, Louisiana, Kalisto managed to score the 1-2-3 on the now former United States Champion Del Rio to win his first singles title in WWE.
