The United States Championship is a midcard championship within the WTX Universe series. It was formerly the midcard championship of the Raw brand until the 2014 Draft in which the championship was exchanged with SmackDown's Intercontinental Championship.

History

The United States Championship debuted as the midcard championship of the Raw brand on the debut episode of WTX Universe back on January 29th 2012. The championship was held by Kofi Kingston who lost it immediately in the first match in WTX Universe history to Ricky Steamboat.

During Rusev's reign as United States Champion he renamed and rebranded the United States Championship into the European Championship.

After Jinder Mahal defeated Rusev to become European Champion, he renamed the championship the United States Championship, claiming he is the hero of America who brought it home.
