WWE United States Championship Match Announced For Clash Of Champions

Bobby Lashley vs. Apollo Crews – United States Championship Match at Clash of Champions

WWE has confirmed that Bobby Lashley will defend the United States Championship in a rematch against former champion Apollo Crews at Clash of Champions.

Lashley has been rampant on Raw as part of the Hurt Business of late. However, the dominant faction have been preoccupied with RETRIBUTION of late. Sunday will see a rivalry renewed, though, as Apollo Crews gets his rematch for the title he lost at WWE Payback.

Crews’ run with his first major championship saw the incredibly athletic Superstar evade the Hurt Business for several months. Can Crews regain the title now that he’s the one doing the chasing?

WWE.com posted the following preview for the Clash of Champions bout:

Bobby Lashley will face a familiar foe in Apollo Crews, as The Hurt Business’ gold standard will look to defend the United States Championship at WWE Clash of Champions.

After the formation of The Hurt Business, Crews was a constant thorn in the side, as he held the coveted United States Title and stymied the faction’s grand plans at every turn. Then came WWE Payback, as The All-Mighty overpowered Crews and forced the tapout with a devastating Full Nelson. Since that fateful night, Lashley and The Hurt Business have frustrated the challenger at every turn. Shelton Benjamin dished out a defeat in Raw Underground, and the addition of Cedric Alexander has tormented Crews in recent weeks. Crews took down Alexander in the most recent red brand showdown, but Lashley had another Hurt Lock waiting for his rival afterwards.

Can Crews recapture his championship magic and regain the title? Or will Lashley and The Hurt Business crush Crews’ title hopes for good?
