R-Truth’s run as United States Champion was tremendous fun, and he certainly succeeded in his quest to make his hero John Cena proud, but we couldn’t be happier to see Samoa Joe with a title on his shoulder.
After the match, Joe had some choice words for his future challengers, which you can hear in the video below:
