Apollo Crews will face MVP on WWE RAW this week, and the winner will be the true WWE United States Champion. Crews never lost the title, but when he was unable to defend it at WWE Extreme Rules, MVP crowned himself as the new champion. Since then, MVP has been carrying a new version of the championship. When the two title-holders collide on Monday, hopefully a true champion will emerge.

Here’s the announcement from WWE’s official website:
“Will the real United States Champion please stand up?
Apollo Crews and MVP will settle that question to kick off this Monday night’s Raw as they battle for the United States Title.
The storied prize has been clouded in controversy lately. Crews was originally set to defend the Championship against MVP at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, but wasn’t cleared to compete as a result of Bobby Lashley’s attack.
As a result, MVP declared himself the new Champion, even unveiling a new title.
With Crews ready to go — and likely fed up with the braggadocious MVP’s antics in recent weeks — can he finally silence his boisterous rival? Or will MVP solidify his claim to the gold.”
