In a position he's not used to being in, John Cena was the first wrestler we saw at the top of the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, meaning WWE wasted no time giving us an answer on who would take Cena up on his open challenge for the US championship.
At first, Zeb Colter made his way out to Jack Swagger's music and we were sure Vince McMahon was going back to that well. Instead, Colter said he wanted to unite all countries and introduced Alberto Del Rio, making his return to the company after over a year away.
And he's already a champion.
That's because Del Rio reversed an AA into a backcracker before hitting a hard kick to the face that got him a three count and the US title. After, he shook hands with Colter, apparently aligning with him, if only for a night.
