Finn Bálor is the new WWE US Champion. On last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Bálor pinned Damian Priest after hitting Priest with his signature move, Coup de Grace.
Damian Priest stated last week that he wanted a world class wrestler to challenge him for the United States championship. He got what he wished for with Bálor’s return.
This win for Bálor marks his first US Championship reign. Bálor has held numerous WWE Championships including the Universal Championship once, the Intercontinental Championship, and the NXT Championship twice.
