As seen during last night’s episode of RAW, Ciampa won a Triple Threat Match over Dolph Ziggler and Chad Gable and then went on to defeat AJ Styles in a singles match to earn a shot at Bobby Lashley’s United States Championship in a match that will be taking place next week on RAW.
Following his big win, Ciampa spoke with WWE.com backstage and told Bobby Lashley to enjoy his last week as United States Champion.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On earning a title shot: “Earned. Earned. Dolph Ziggler, Chad Gable, AJ Styles. I win. I win! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. All I need is an opportunity, and my opportunity comes next week.”
On Lashley saying he can beat him anywhere: “‘Anywhere, any time, anyone,’ that’s what Bobby said. I heard what Bobby said. The problem is, may I? The problem is, Bobby Lashley, I am not anyone. I am the greatest sports entertainer of all time. I am The Blackheart, and the fact of the matter is nobody makes a title more prestigious than the man you are looking at before you. Bobby Lashley, enjoy your last week because as of next Monday, you are looking at your new United States Champion.”
