Bobby Lashley is once again the United States Champion.
Lashley defeated Theory at WWE Money in the Bank tonight to win the championship for a third time. The finish had Theory go for the ATL, but Lashley reversed and hit the hurt lock, eventually causing Theory to tap out. This end’s Theory’s run with the championship after 75 days, defeating Finn Balor back on the April 18 edition of Raw.
The feud between Lashley and Theory started after the two had a pose down on a recent edition of Raw. The posedown ended after Theory squirted baby oil into Lashley’s eyes. On the June 20 edition of Raw, Lashley interrupted Theory’s own posedown by squirting baby oil on Theory.
Later in that show, Theory set up a gauntlet match where if Lashley won, he would get a United States title shot at Money in the Bank. Lashley was able to win the match after pinning the third entrant in the gauntlet match, which was Theory himself.
