The prestigious WWE United States Championship crowned Harley Race the first champion in 1975...

WWE just announced through YouTube the bracket for the WWE United States Championship Tournament that started this week on SmackDown Live. As Daniel Bryan announced to start the show, there would be a tournament to crown a new champion after Dolph Ziggler would not return his calls for a week and essentially relinquished the belt.

We already know two of the four men moving on to the semi-finals of the tournament as Bobby Roode defeated Baron Corbin and Jinder Mahal defeated Tye Dillinger in first-round action this past Tuesday on SmackDown Live.

The wonderful Cathy Kelley unveiled the entire bracket; which you can see below...

The bracket for the WWE United States Championship Tournament

The two men who were victorious on Tuesday are on opposite side of the bracket, and the remaining four men in the tournament could have their matches on next week's edition of SmackDown Live, the first of 2018 from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

Former teammates now rivals, Mojo Rawley and Zack Ryder clash in the first round. Also, a couple of gentlemen in tag teams who have been feuding will meet in the final first-round matchup when The New Day's Xavier Woods takes on Aiden English.

While it is anyone's guess who will meet in the finals of the tournament, I would guess we're heading for a Bobby Roode and Jinder Mahal clash, but don't count out Xavier Woods as a darkhorse in this tournament.
