Bobby Lashley retains the United States Championship against Ciampa

Bobby Lashley managed to retain the WWE United States Championship against Ciampa this week Monday Night Raw. “The All Mighty” seemed to have won the match when he threw a spear, only for The Miz to put Ciampa’s foot on the rope to break the count. “A-Lister” was promptly knocked out by AJ Styles, but the opening gave Ciampa the opportunity to hit Lashley’s face in an unprotected hook-up. Next, the former NXT Champion will hit a jogger’s knee and a Willow bell, but he can’t get more than two counts.

Lashley blocked another knee run attempt with a throttle, then finally applied The Hurt Lock. Ciampa nearly hit the ropes, but had to give in with his beating.

Ciampa took to the track in a classic Harley Race jumpsuit. As a student of all time, Ciampa dedicated the match to his first-ever United States Champion.

“Tonight is dedicated to Handsome Harley, The King, the first-ever United States Champion….or as I always called him ‘Boss.’ In 2008, when I moved to Eldon, Missouri to train with Harley Race, I was a lost kid at twenty-two. of my age.I had just come out of my development contract, I lacked confidence, and I was depressed.The decision to leave the house, get out of my comfort zone, and start over in a new one was scary for me…but it was A risk I needed to take. When I think about my career today, it was very clear to me how much Harley has affected me…personally and professionally,” Ciampa wrote. “Harley is a meaningless man. His mere existence requires respect… I can say this from the moment I met him. However, as days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, I discovered that Harley had a heart of gold.. He cared about his students not Not only in the ring but also outside.

He continued, “Harley’s trust in me as a man and as a performer allowed me to regain confidence in myself. He allowed me to make mistakes, and helped guide me to fix those.” Every day before class I would try to get to school early and ask Harley to watch the tapes with me. Sometimes he would say ‘politely’, ‘Not today’s kid.’ But sometimes the answer was yes… and I’ll tell you this, there aren’t many things Compare the strip study sessions with Harley Race.My best memories of my training in my time at Harley Race Academy were actually away from the track.It was Thanksgiving 2008 and I (along with many others) couldn’t afford to fly home for the holiday.He invited Harley a group of his students came to his place for a home cooked Thanksgiving feast. He treated us like family. It was unbelievable! I am grateful for the time I had with Harley in ’08… I wouldn’t be the man or performer that I am today without him. Harley died almost exactly three years ago today. However, I can hear his voice as clear as today, ‘You did a good kid, you did well.’ Thank you, Boss. Thank you for everything.”
