WWE reveals United States title tournament bracket

After the first two matches took place on SmackDown this week, WWE has revealed the bracket for the United States Championship tournament.

Zack Ryder vs. Mojo Rawley and Xavier Woods vs. Aiden English are the two remaining matches in the first round. The winner of Ryder vs. Rawley will go on to face Bobby Roode, with the winner of Woods vs. English advancing to face Jinder Mahal.

WWE announced the tournament on Tuesday's SmackDown after the angle where Dolph Ziggler left the US Championship in the ring and walked out the week prior, with Daniel Bryan noting that Ziggler had seemingly willingly relinquished the title. Roode defeated Baron Corbin and Mahal beat Tye Dillinger to advance to the second round.

The bracket indicates that the finals will take place at the Royal Rumble on January 28th.

The tournament should continue on SmackDown next Tuesday. The Usos defending their Tag Team titles against Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin is set for the episode as well, along with Breezango vs. The Bludgeon Brothers. WWE will also follow up on Kevin Owens' non-title win over AJ Styles from this week's show and the storyline of ongoing tension between Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan.
