WWE star Sheamus is set to get a championship opportunity at WrestleMania 37 as per the reports. It is not the WWE Championship shot but at the WWE United States Championship which is held by Riddle.
Sheamus to become WWE United States Champion?
WWE WrestleMania 37 already has huge matches on the card but with the event two weeks away, there might be another addition to the card. The Celtic Warrior and Riddle could lock horns for the US Championship.
Sheamus has been involved in a storyline with Drew McIntyre for the past few weeks but now apparently he is set to feud with Riddle after having a backstage segment with him. WWE Star Reacts To ‘Racism’ After Matt Riddle Match
Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via CSS) reported that the backstage is likely to set up a match between the two at WrestleMania 37.
The Observer mentions that Riddle vs. Sheamus on Raw this week will likely set up a match between the two at WrestleMania.
Backstage reports also revealed that WWE management has been happy with the performance Sheamus has put up lately and thus could be rewarding him with the US Championship at WrestleMania.
WWE was never in favour of giving the championship to Riddle. WON reported that Keith lee was set to become US Champion dethroning Bobby Lashley.
But The Limitless One had been dealing with health issues and that is the reason he had to be replaced by John Morrison in the triple threat match in which Riddle became US Champion.
