Title Changes Hands On WWE Raw

Title Changes Hands On WWE Raw

Kurt Angle booked the match for Mahal after he complained about not being treated like a top star and called out Brock Lesnar.

Intercontinental champion Seth Rollins would not only give SmackDown Live a secondary title but also provide the show with a star who can help anchor the brand.

Jeff Hardy wins the United States Championship on RawWhat's the story?

However, he wasn't champion for long.

The two had a fairly decent match that went at the usual methodical pace that Mahal matches usually go.

And in the process of defeating Jinder Mahal for the, Hardy put himself into the WWE history books twice.

Hardy returned to WWE at WrestleMania a year ago and won the Raw Tag Team Championships with his brother Matt, but this is his first singles Championship since his return and it finally makes the veteran a Grand Slam Champion.

Mahal, of course, has spent most of his WWE career as an enhancement wrestler, with his most prominent role being a member of 3MB with Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre.

Hardy's reign as the US champion may not last long. With this loss, and a foreshadowed feud with No Way Jose, it looks like Mahal may move down the card a bit on RAW. It would mean separating Jeff from his brother Matt, but the pair would have little trouble going in different directions.
