WWE Royal Rumble 2016: Alberto Del Rio vs. Kalisto US title match official

Kalisto beat Alberto Del Rio to win the United States championship on Raw last Monday. The very next night at the SmackDown taping, Del Rio won it back.

Now, they'll have the rematch of the rematch.

WWE officially announced that Kalisto will again challenge for the US title only this time it will happen on the undercard at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view scheduled for Sun., Jan. 24 at the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla.

It creates an interesting scenario: Either the title becomes a hot potato, changing hands multiple times in the span of one week, or Kalisto takes a big hit in his early run as a singles wrestler now that his tag team partner in Lucha Dragons, Sin Cara, is injured.


Here's the updated Royal Rumble match card:

- Royal Rumble (WWE world heavyweight championship)
- Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens (Intercontinental championship)
- Alberto Del Rio vs. Kalisto (US championship)
