3 WWE Superstars who could challenge Rey Mysterio for the United States Championship
Failing to capture the WWE Championship at Survivor Series, Rey Mysterio was certainly disappointed, but didn't wait long to get another title shot. Mysterio earned the opportunity to challenge AJ Styles for his United States Championship on RAW this week by beating three other Superstars in a Fatal 4-Way match. Rey Mysterio then went on to pin Styles to win the US Championship for the second time in his illustrious career.
The three-time WWE Champion already won the US Title earlier this year, but an injury forced him to abdicate the belt to Samoa Joe. Mysterio has since rejuvenated his character via his feud with WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. Although 'The Beast' defeated Rey Mysterio at Survivor Series, the former toiled hard to get the job done.
Who will next face Rey Mysterio for his United States Championship remains to be seen. In this article, we take a look at three possible opponents for Mysterio.
#3 AJ Styles
Rey Mysterio defeated AJ Styles for the United States Championship, and the two may extend their rivalry in the near future. Delivering one of the best matches on RAW this week, they have proven that they are competent of having an exciting feud. Moreover, Styles is the perfect heel to Mysterio's babyface character, so it makes perfect sense for them to have an extended rivalry.
Turning heel a couple of months ago, Styles joined forces with The OC to become an indomitable force on RAW. Not only have Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson found their footing in WWE, but they have also helped Styles win several matches.
While Styles has back-up in The OC, Mysterio has his own back-up. Dominic, Rey Mysterio's son, was involved in the WWE Championship match at Survivor Series, and could play a pivotal role in this potential feud. Moreover, Mysterio introduced Cain Velasquez to the WWE Universe, and the former UFC Champion could appear regularly on TV, if he decides to join forces with Rey Mysterio once again.
