Kalisto To Defend US Title At WrestleMania 32


Kalisto To Defend US Title At WrestleMania 32

It’s looking as if WWE United States Champion, Kalisto, will be defending the title at the upcoming Wrestlemania 32 event, at least, that’s according to a report on a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio.

According to the report, the two-time champ is locked to join the already star studded Wrestlemania line up, but, his opponent is not who people would assume it would be. Most believed that he would have another go around with former US Champ Alberto Del Rio, as the two have been embroiled in a heated feud over the last few months, but, it would seem that the match may go to “The Big Guy” Ryback.

Now, Ryback has been going through a bit of a change, as of late, changing his look and so on, that change may also result in a rumoured heel turn that Ryback (and the WWE, apparently) has been teasing for some time. Ryback is set to be booked in a few US Title Triple Threat matches against Del Rio and Kalisto in some upcoming live events, so, it is very possible that the company is looking to test the waters in bringing that feud onto television.

Ryback has shown that he can do well with a singles’ title, as he is a former Intercontinental Champion, and was once considered a threat for the WWE Championship.
