WWE’s second night of WrestleMania included a few title switches, including Matt Riddle losing the U.S. Title to Sheamus. That switch seems to put things where they should be in the first place.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Matt Riddle was never supposed to win the United States Title. Him losing that belt at WrestleMania simply puts things back to where they are supposed to be.
“Riddle was never supposed to be champion. They had to do it because Keith Lee, for whatever the reason is, was pulled. They had to get the belt off Bobby Lashley because they were giving the WWE Title to him and it was one of those situations. They couldn’t give it to Morrison because Morrison was in the Bad Bunny angle. Riddle got the belt because there’s no other choice, so this rectifies it.”
It was noted that Riddle might become something like R-Truth backstage. We’ll have to see if he gets a rematch at WrestleMania Backlash next month.
