Matt Riddle Pins John Morrison, Wins WWE US Title At Elimination Chamber
Riddle is the new WWE United States Champion.
On the Elimination Chamber Kickoff show, John Morrison won a Fatal 4-Way Match to earn the spot. WWE announced that Keith Lee would be unable to compete due to an injury. Riddle has been feuding with Lashley in recent weeks.
“The Almighty” controlled the match early on. He slammed Morrison into the steel ring post. Morrison and Riddle tried to work together to counter Lashley’s dominance, but the champion maintained the upper hand.
