At WrestleMania 35, Samoa Joe has retained the United States Championship against Rey Mysterio in a quick match on 7 April 2019.
Samoa Joe and Mysterio got involved in the United States Open Challenge by R Truth where Samoa Joe won the title at SmackDown and then retained it Fastlane. Rey pinned Joe in a tag team match and later announced that he will face Joe at WrestleMania for the title. However, last week, WWE reported that Rey Mysterio has injured his ankle which might be the reason for the short match.
Joe starts with a kick in the gut but Rey counters the body slam into a Tornado DDT. Rey hits the 619. Joe counters the splash and locks Rey into the Coquina Clutch. Referee checks on Rey and gives the submission win to Joe.
Winner- Samoa Joe with a submission
