Riddle wasn’t originally supposed to win the United States title

Mar 27, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

Keith Lee was supposed to be in the United States Title match and win the title, but he was pulled due to health issues. The company needed a triple threat match situation because Bobby Lashley couldn’t take a pinfall to drop the title. He was already in line to become WWE Champion and couldn’t suffer a loss.

Since Lee was pulled from the match, John Morrison won a multi-man match during the kickoff show to get into that United States Title match and he took the pinfall.
