In tonight's WWE's Royal Rumble kickoff show, fans were treated to Humberto Carrillo and Andrade fighting over the United States Championship. This could be seen as a grudge match, as Andrade did put Carrillo out of action for a month due to an injury. With that said, can Carrillo come out on top?
With a proverbial fire under Carrillo's ass, he was ready to dish out some sweet revenge. It was clear early on in the match that Andrade was on the offensive, blocking some high-flying maneuvers from Carrillo. Carrillo and Andrade are both exciting to watch in the ring, and the two told a great in ring story together. And for what is worth, there was no interference by Andrade's manager Zelina Vega. So we got to see Andrade move on his own, which is always exciting.

In the end Andrade retained his title while rolling through a huracanrana that Carrillo was executing. If you're not into the pre show matches, this is one you should watch for the sheer fun of it. While it certainly wasn't a pay per view level match, it works great as a RAW main event. Congrats to Andrade for retaining his title!
