The third match of the night at the WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view was a Triple Threat Match featuring Bobby Lashley defending the United States Championship against Matt Riddle and John Morrison. During the Kickoff show, Morrison won a four-way match to win the right to replace Lee, who is said to be injured.
MVP was on a crutch at ringside, which confirms the news about his leg injury. The main story of the match was that Riddle and Morrison had to work together because that was the only way they could beat Lashley. Morrison tried to use MVP’s crutch but Lashley countered into the Hurt Lock and Riddle beat Lashley with the crutch.
Riddle won the title by pinning Morrison after hitting the Bo Derek.
