Andrade To Defend WWE United States Championship In a Ladder Match Against Rey Mysterio

This week on WWE Monday Night RAW, it was announced that WWE United States Champion Andrade will defend his title against Rey Mysterio in a ladder match on next week’s show. Zelina Vega called Mysterio a disgrace and a criminal for stealing the title from Andrade last week. Mysterio criticized the example Andrade sets for others and said he loves the idea of a ladder match. He said he’s ready to sacrifice years of his career and his life in this ladder match.

Aleister Black Beats Buddy Murphy For The Third Time

This week on WWE Monday Night RAW, Aleister Black battled his rival, Buddy Murphy. Black holds two victories over Murphy but WWE’s Best Kept Secret hoped to prove he’s on Black’s level with a win in their third encounter. Black rocked Murphy with a stiff elbow right off the bat but the match was evenly matched early on. The competitors brawled around ringside and Murphy slammed Black on the ramp. A kick from Black sent Murphy crashing onto the security barricade.

Murphy dropkicked Black into the ring post and suplexed him onto the floor. Black stomped Murphy on the floor and rocked him with a running knee. Murphy countered Black Mass and almost picked up the win with a roll-up. But the referee didn’t count the three because Murphy was holding Black’s trunks. A stiff kick sent Murphy tumbling off the top and into the security barricade. Black floored Murphy with a kick but Murphy countered a springboard moonsault. He hit Murphy’s Law but Black got his foot on the rope to stop the three count. Murphy tried to hit Black Mass but Black countered and hit it himself for a near fall. A second Black Mass earned Black the win.
