During a new interview with Wrestling Shoot Interviews, former WWE referee Mike Chioda told a story about R-Truth accidentally winning the United States Title. R-Truth was challenging Shinsuke Nakamura for the United States Title on the January 29, 2019 SmackDown when he accidentally pinned Nakamura with a rollup. This was not the planned finish for the match, which was not supposed to see a title change. Chioda also said that Vince McMahon loved the surprise. R-Truth would go on to hold the title for thirty five days.
It was an interesting story. Check out the full interview, the match and some of R-Truth’s other finest moments:
