WWE celebrated their Elimination Chamber pay-per-view that ended with The Miz as WWE Champion. This was heavily assisted by Bobby Lashley, who hit Drew McIntyre before The Miz went down for the win. One thing about the event had to happen for that ending to make sense.
For this reason Keith Lee was removed from Elimination Chamber
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer spoke about WWE’s decision-making process heading into Elimination Chamber. Keith Lee was out of the fight for the US title, but they needed to replace him. Things would not have worked out at all with his plans for the conclusion of the event unless the US title match was a triple threat match.
“Now you know why they didn’t do a heads-up match, and why they were adamant because Keith Lee wasn’t in singles, but that just wouldn’t work for what they were trying to do, so that’s why they had to. get Morrison into the game, or someone. It could have been anyone in that third-man place, because they needed him. “
It’s possible Keith Lee was going to win the United States title if he was in the match, but it was for Riddle. WWE needed to take the title from Bobby Lashley to prepare him for more important things and not lose in the process.
Bobby Lashley later commented on his actions against Drew McIntyre simply by saying “business.” It was about green and probably a future title opportunity for the CEO of Hurt Business.
