Rusev Will Defend U.S. Title Against Titus O’Neil At WWE Money In The Bank

Former WWE Tag Team Champion Titus O’Neil will be challenging Rusev for the United States Title at WWE Money in the Bank on Sunday, June 19. This was made official today by WWE.com and WWE’s official YouTube channel.

This is a big match in the career of Titus O’Neil as it will be the first time he is challenging for a singles title in WWE.
