Original Plan For WWE Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show Match


Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE considered holding a battle royal on the pre-show with the winner being added to the US Title match at the Elimination Chamber PPV. 

Instead, WWE held a fatal 4-way on the Kickoff show. John Morrison defeated Ricochet, Mustafa Ali and Elias. He ended up losing to Matt Riddle in a match that involved then-champion Bobby Lashley.


The goal of the match was to find a replacement for Keith Lee, who has been out of action.
