New WWE Title Announced on Raw

Reason for Quick Samoa Joe-Mysterio Match
At Money in the Bank, Rey Mysterio quickly pinned Samoa Joe to win the United States Championship. According to PWInsider, the match was hurried to the conclusion due to an injury. Samoa Joe broke his nose during the match, causing bleeding and the hasty end to the match.

The decision was made for the match to end early and go forward with the post-match angle of Joe attacking Mysterio. The match ending had controversy as well, as Joe’s shoulder was noticeably up on the winning pinfall.
