SummerSlam Results: Antonio Cesaro Defeats Santino Marella To Become New U.S. Champion

SummerSlam is already off and running on Sunday night. A title has changed hands before the pay-per-view has even begun. On the pre-show, Antonio Cesaro defeated Santino Marella to capture the United States championship.

Marella tried to get fired up for the match.

He also tried to invoke the spirit of the 2012 Olympics with a passionate racewalk to the ring.

Unfortunately, both Santino and his glorious mullet came up short. Cesaro even had the audacity to tear up the precious Cobra sock. Marella had a backup sock stored in his butt, but was unable to hit his finisher. Cesaro hit the "Neutralizer" (because he's Swiss) and picked up the win.
