This Monday Night, Raw will air live from New Orleans, Louisiana. Not only is The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar returning to WWE television on Raw, but WWE is teasing big things for other superstars.

On the debut episode of Smackdown on the USA Network, the red-hot Kalisto got a clean victory over the current United States Champion Alberto Del Rio. The shocking win has catapulted the luchador into the US title scene just as John Cena is clocking out of it.

Kalisto has already been confirmed as Del Rio’s opponent for the United States title at the “Royal Rumble”, but has posted the following statement teasing that the WWE Universe may see Kalisto get his first shot at the Championship on this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw:

Thursday night on SmackDown, John Cena introduced Kalisto as U.S. Champion Alberto Del Rio’s opponent, and after The Essence of Excellence refused to put his title on the line, The Lucha Dragon scored an upset victory over the boastful League of Nations member.

Following Kalisto’s non-title win over Del Rio — perhaps the biggest accomplishment in his career thus far — is the masked marvel in line for a U.S. Title opportunity?

Kalisto gave the following promo after defeating Alberto Del Rio on Smackdown last week:
