Seth Rollins will be defending his United States Championship title at Survivor Series WarGames against two former US champions.

He won the title from Bobby Lashley in early October after Brock Lesnar’s interference. Ever since then, both Austin Theory and Lashley have been trying to recapture it back from him. Theory had almost succeeded in doing so by cashing in his Money In The Bank contract but after a Lashley attack, he lost his opportunity.
The US champion Rollins, himself appeared via satellite on RAW to preview this upcoming match and in his patented style, dissed his competitors.

He even brought Cody Rhodes into the picture making an example on him for Theory. Rollins also called Theory the dumbest person on earth for losing his MITB opportunity.
Mustafa Ali has been gunning for the US title since Lashley was the champ and he has continued his pursuit with Rollins as well. However he was unable to gain any advantage on his opponents and has always ended up on his back. Therefore, he has been dropped from the US title picture.
Theory showed off his new intense character by beating Ali in a match and then called out Lashley. Bobby obliged by coming to the ring and fighting him. All of his offense proved useless on The Almighty, who chased him out of the ringside area to the back. At the gorilla position, a battered Ali was waiting and Theory pushed him towards Lashley. The big man then took out all his anger on Ali and laid him out with his signature Hurt Lock at the entrance.

Mustafa Ali is seen losing every week on both RAW & SmackDown. He lost to Ricochet last Friday at the SmackDown World Cup tournament. At one point, he was the leader of the Retribution stable and a contender for the US title. Unfortunately, he is practically a jobber now, used to make others look good.
