Sheamus looks to take Austin Theory's U.S. Title

Published Jun. 30, 2023 9:58 p.m. ET

U.S. Champion Austin Theory has made quite the enemy of The Brawling Brutes since coming to SmackDown. In his first United States Title defense on the blue brand, Theory overcame The Celtic Warrior, making new friends with Pretty Deadly, who helped him win. Since then, Theory and Pretty Deadly have collided with The Brawling Brutes, with Theory and Pretty Deadly getting the better of brawling trio. Last week on SmackDown, Theory took down Ridge Holland in a Championship Contender’s Match, continuing to beat him down after the match, prompting The Celtic Warrior to come to his aid. Next week, Sheamus will get another chance at the United States Title as he faces Theory once again. Can Sheamus turn the U.S. Title into the banger championship, or will Theory hold the status quo? Don’t miss SmackDown next week at 8/7 C on FOX!
