Swagger Wins The United States Championship, Ryder Reacts



Jack Swagger became the new WWE United States Champion on Monday’s's RAW Supershow after he defeated a badly injured Zack Ryder, who was selling the attack from Kane last week.

Ryder wrote the following on Twitter last night about his United States Title loss:

“So I’m not the US champ anymore. Sorry to let my Broskis down. I will make no excuses for tonight…I will be United States champion again!”

Swagger stated in a recent interview that 2012 was going to be his year and he had his sights set on the United States championship.

As we’ve been reporting in recent weeks, Zack Ryder’s segments on RAW have been drowing very low ratings, which could be the reason WWE decided to take the US title off him.

Either Ryder will be put back in the role of “chasing the title” (which is typically a better ratings draw than a babyface champion) or shuffled around in the mid-card.
