5 potential WWE United States Champions
The 'Road to Wrestlemania' has begun and WWE has some stellar matches booked. There are excellent stories developing on both SmackDown Live and Raw, but Bobby Roode and his United States Championship are lacking a solid story. Therefore elevating this historic title should be primary for WWE.
In past years, WWE has afforded wrestlers with titles only for them to be beaten almost instantly by someone else. Furthermore, history has proved that a solid rivalry with twists and turns is best for business. Roode most certainly has the credentials to participate in a strong rivalry and defend his championship.
So, which wrestlers could challenge and beat 'The Glorious One' to become WWE United States champion. Let's have a look at some possible options.
#5 Drew McIntyre
Drew McIntyre was once known as 'The Chosen One' by Vince McMahon. Between 2007-2014, McIntyre won the WWE Intercontinental Championship and WWE Tag Team Championship alongside fellow wrestler Cody Rhodes. Furthermore, with an uneventful initial run with WWE, they released him in 2014.
Eventually, he returned to WWE on their developmental brand NXT, becoming the NXT champion. However, after a short reign, McIntyre, unfortunately, became injured and relinquished the NXT Championship.
Furthermore, with fans left wondering about his fate, what better way for a return than debuting on SmackDown Live and defeating Bobby Roode for the United States Championship. How will WWE play out this situation?
