U.S. title match booked for SmackDown Live this week

The United States championship wasn’t represented at Hell in a Cell last night (Sun., Oct. 16, 2018) in San Antonio, with Shinsuke Nakamura getting the night off. He’ll be back to work this Tuesday night, however.

Per the SmackDown Live General Manager:

Rusev actually did wrestle at Hell in a Cell, teaming with Aiden English to challenge The New Day on the Kickoff show. They lost, of course, because of all the same issues they’ve been dealing with forever. Now, for reasons that are still unclear, he’s getting another shot at another title.
