Jeff Hardy Becomes Grand Slam Champion With United States Championship Victory

Jeff Hardy Becomes Grand Slam Champion With United States Championship Victory

As seen on Monday Night RAW, Jeff Hardy defeated the newly drafted Jinder Mahal to become the brand new United States Champion. After Mahal and Singh interrupted RAW General Manager Kurt Angle and complained about the lack of amenities they were afforded, Angle essentially told "The Modern Day Maharaja" that he would receive the same treatment as the rest of the roster (well, except Brock Lesnar, but that's another story). Things got off to a hot start when Angle announced that Mahal would have to defend his United States Championship against Jeff Hardy. With this, Hardy has completed the prestigious Grand Slam in the WWE. Mahal is also a former WWE Champion after defeating Orton previous year, but it seems that his reign as United States Champion has been much shorter than his reign as WWE Champion throughout 2017.

Around this time previous year, Jinder Mahal left Monday Night RAW as one of the lowest wrestlers on the WWE totem pole.

The belt was the lone singles title missing on Hardy's resume, making him the 11th wrestler in WWE history to capture every championship in the company.

But anger over what many see as the U.K.'s shabby treatment of residents of Caribbean origin eclipsed trade topics. The prime minister's spokesman insisted that "no-one with the right to be here will be made to leave".

Of course, the US title might end up back up SmackDown Live, since Hardy is eligible to change brands.

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.
