There were 4 titles on the line tonight at Elimination Chamber. One title changed hands during the second hour of the show.
Bobby Lashley defended his US Championship against Riddle and John Morrison. When the bell rang, it was Riddle who had his hand raised.
Riddle is the new United States Champion. Riddle who has been tapping left and right to Bobby Lashley pinned John Morrison and won the title due to the triple threat rules.
The end of the match came when Morrison brought MVP’s crutch into the ring. Morrison was unsuccessful in his attempt to use the crutch.

However, Riddle was able to connect with the weapon to the back of Lashley. Lashley rolled out of the ring and Riddle hit Morrison with the Bro Derek for the win.
This is Riddle’s first US Title win. Based on the way the match ended, we could see the feud between the two continue.
Or, Lashley, who was booked to not look weak in defeat, could move on to bigger things. Drew McIntyre still doesn’t have an opponent for WrestleMania after Edge has made his pick.
