Samoa Joe earned the first title in his WWE career in dramatic fashion.

The Samoan Submission Specialist won the United States Championship during WWE SmackDown Live Tuesday after pinning Andrade at the end of a Fatal 4-Way match:

Joe also stopped Rey Mysterio from potentially getting the win just a few seconds earlier.

The match was a result of an open challenge from R-Truth, which was answered by Joe, Andrade and Mysterio. Only one was able to come away with the championship, though, and it was the big man who left the ring with the belt.

R-Truth originally grabbed the U.S. title from Shinsuke Nakamura on January 29, but he went home empty-handed Tuesday.
