So R-Truth is your new United States Champion and even he doesn’t believe it.
Thanks to his unfortunate exit from the men’s Royal Rumble on Sunday, Truth was granted a Untied States title shot versus Shinsuke Nakamura tonight (Jan, 29) on SmackDown.
Less than two minutes into the title match, Truth pulled out the win. We think?

Fast count? Just a flat out bad call by WWE officials?
To top it all off, Rusev immediately came out to confront and challenge Truth seconds after he won the title.
The funny thing is Truth accepted the match and defended his title right then and there. Truth defended and defeated Rusev by a sunset flip.
Post-match, Rusev and Nakamura put the boots to the new champion.
You could say @RusevBUL and @ShinsukeN are NOT happy about how their matches ended... #SDLive pic.twitter.com/3PZG4fnZXw— WWE (@WWE) January 30, 2019
Heel Rusev? R-Truth winning his first singles title in over seven years?
