WWE announced a huge triple threat match for Bobby Lashley’s United States Championship. Lashley will defend his title against Keith Lee and Riddle.

After this, Lashley, along with the Hurt Business, entered the ring. He attacked both the opponents and laid them out, proving his dominance. Now, the trio will settle their score at the upcoming pay-per-view.

The preview for the match stated, “Both Riddle and Lee are seeking their first championship breakthrough since arriving on the red brand and will have their hands full against Lashley. After hearing he’d have to take on not but two enterprising upstarts, Lashley was furious with WWE Official Adam Pearce over the decision.”

Bobby Lashley is in his second reign as the United States Champion. On the last episode of Raw, Lashley defended his title against Riddle, losing via disqualification.

Elimination Chamber 2021 has three matches as of now. The main event will feature Drew McIntyre defending his WWE Championship inside the Chamber, and his opponents are all past champions.

RAW Women’s Champion Asuka will defend her title against Lacey Evans after Ric Flair snubbed his daughter Charlotte Flair.

Bobby Lashley named two female superstars for Hurt Business membership

The Hurt Business is one of the most successful factions in WWE right now. Apart from Lashley’s United States Championship, Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin are the RAW tag team Champions.

He recently spoke about new members in the faction. He said, “I think there are some people on the roster that have a kind of the same mentality that we have, that older school mentality. There’ are a lot of names that have been thrown out, male and female. I like them both.”

There’s a lot of names that have been thrown out. Mickie James came back with our era, so Mickie James has that old Hurt Business style from before. You have Naomi, she has that whoop a girl up attitude also,” Lashley said.
