Bobby Lashley is being booked very strong as United States Champion. Matt Riddle has been a thorn in his side, and Lashley wants to give him a beating. That doesn’t mean the King of Bros has earned a title shot.
The WWE US Champion tweeted out saying that he wants to “whoop his ass,” so Riddle is on notice. He’s still not getting a US Title shot, because the CEO of the Hurt Business doesn’t want to put his title up for grabs.
Enough of the BS. @The305MVP I wanna whoop his ass in some way. He hasn’t earned a title shot, but I want to dish out some HURT
It appears that Matt Riddle will eventually get that US Title shot, but he might have to earn it. Only time will tell if he ends up winning.
This is just the beginning for Riddle on the main roster, and Vince McMahon has put a lot of effort into building up Bobby Lashley.
