The rivalry between Rey Mysterio and Andrade surrounding the WWE United States Championship will reach new heights next week, as WWE confirmed on Monday that the pair will face off in a Ladder Match for the title on the Jan. 20 episode of Monday Night Raw. Though the two Latino stars feuded several times on SmackDown, Andrade finally got the upper hand when he beat Mysterio for his US title at Madison Square Garden in December. The rematch between the two saw Mysterio accidentally attack Zelina Vega. After the match Andrade stole Mysterio's mask, so the legendary luchador retaliated by taking his mask back and stealing the title belt.
Vega and Andrade cut a backstage promo during this week's Raw where they said they were embarrassed to call Mysterio a Latino role model, and that he was setting a better example for Rey's son Dominick. The match was announced shortly after that.
