WWE’s Royal Rumble event is January 31st, and we will have full coverage right here at Ringside News. The company had plans to run a United States Title match at the Royal Rumble, but those plans might have already been changed.
WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley announced that he is in the Royal Rumble match. It’s not unheard of that he will defend his US Title and also compete in the Royal Rumble match, but WWE is considering moving that title match up.
According to Fightful Select, WWE is playing with the idea of having Bobby Lashley defend the US Title eariler than the Royal Rumble.
The plan for the last several weeks was to hold off Lashley’s title defense until the Royal Rumble, but there has been discussion of moving it up.
Matt Riddle is seemingly next in line to face Bobby Lashley. WWE can do whatever they want in this situation, and things can always change around multiple times prior to the Royal Rumble event.
Keep checking back with Ringside News as we continue monitoring this ongoing situation.
