The WWE is so determined to shove the importance of the WWE Network in our faces that the US Championship match took place after RAW went off air and was available only to the WWE Network subscribers. Not only that, but the championship actually changed hands.
Since I’m based in the UK and I don’t have an access to the WWE Network, I can’t really tell you whether the match was good or not. All I can say is, that promoting one’s product is only natural but failing to make that product available and then sticking a title match on it, is just a travesty towards the fans.
Here’re the highlights of the match:
Rusev’s win was expected as it fits naturally in the build up of his character. As for the Celtic Warrior, Sheamus never tapped out so his pride is protected.
