Bobby Lashley looked dominant but because it was a triple threat match, Riddle was able to pin John Morrison to win the United States championship at Elimination Chamber. After, he cut a post-match promo, his first as a champion on the main roster in WWE, talking about how the belt is going to elevate him:
“… A lot of people say ‘hey, I’m gonna elevate this title, I’m gonna elevate this championship.’ And I’m like, nuh-uh, not me, this championship is going to elevate me. It’s going to give me that golden ticket to open up the doors I need to open to get to that next level. Just like it got Bobby to that next level, it’s going to get me to that next level. And right now, wooooo, with a tear in my eye, this is one of the greatest nights of my life. I am the United States champion and I’m going to be for a long, long time, bro.”
Ready for a whole lot more of the Bro?
