Men’s MITB Qualifying Match: Riddle vs. Omos
Omos catches Riddle mid-air on an RKO attempt and nails him with a double chokeslam for the three count.
After the match, Seth Rollins comes out, likely in retaliation from Riddle’s pre-match comments about Rollins, as he voiced his disapproval for Rollins’ attack on Cody Rhodes. Rollins attacks Riddle and throws him out of the ring. Rollins then gets on the mic and calls Riddle a loser. Rollins says he lost his title match against Roman Reigns, and now he lost against Omos in his MITB qualifying match.
Rollins says he’s the only man in MITB who has Roman Reigns’ number. Once he wins MITB, he’ll find Roman Reigns. He adds, if you think the first time he cashed-in his MITB was something, you haven’t seen nothing yet. Riddle then gets back in the ring and goes after Rollins, but Rollins quickly takes him back out with a stomp and laughs over him.
Theory makes his way out to the ring now. He hypes up being the youngest United States Champion in history. He adds that next week may be the John Cena celebration, but Cena’s time is up, Theory’s time is now. Theory then discusses his Pose Down loss to Lashley last week. He says he wasn’t able to show off all of his poses, but they’ll get to now in his invitational pose down. Theory begins posing but Lashley soon appears in the ring behind him.
Lashley sprays Theory with oil before spearing him. Lashley gets on the mic and tells him that the United States Title is coming home with him, before raising up the title.
After the break, Theory is interviewed backstage. He says Bobby Lashley doesn’t deserve a United States Title match. He spoke to Adam Pierce and suggested an idea that Pierce accepted. Lashley will need to defeat three opponents in a Gauntlet match. If he wins, he’ll get a United States Title match at Money In The Bank.
