There are now about two weeks left to the two nights of WrestleMania 37, the event of the year for wrestling fans and professionals who will see two fantastic evenings in the Tampa stadium next 10 and 11 April. The WWE's goal is to have a large and important card in two evenings that will see the public return (finally) to the stands.
The main matches have already been defined with Drew McIntyre who will challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship on Raw while SmackDown promises an extraordinary Triple Threat Match between Roman Reigns, Edge and Daniel Bryan.
In the last hours, the graft of a match at Wrestlemania 37 valid for the title of US Championship seems to be getting closer and closer.
Can Sheamus become the US Champion at WrestleMania 37?
As reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via CSS) last week's backstage clash on Monday Night Raw between Sheamus and Riddle will lead to a US Championship match between Original Bro and Celtic Warrior.
In recent months Sheamus has been busy at the top and despite the net defeats suffered against former friend Drew McIntyre and then against Bobby Lashley, the company appreciated the work done by the wrestler who has always offered excellent value matches.
For this reason, the WWE seems to want to reward Sheamus with a victory at WrestleMania 37 of the US Championship; on the other hand, Dave Meltzer himself pointed out that Riddle's victory of the Us title was not originally in the plans and this choice was born only after Keith Lee's health problems.
Meltzer had in fact said that the idea of the booking team was precisely to make Riddle take the pin to make Lee win in the Triple Threat Match with Bobby Lashley who would direct his attention to the WWE Championship without any problem.
However, Keith Lee's recent health problems have turned everything upside down. The wrestler was so doubly unfortunate, both in getting sick with Covid and missing out on a big chance to win the Stamford company's first Main Roster title.
Backstage reports also revealed that WWE management has been pleased with Sheamus. So it is likely that he will be rewarded with the US Championship at WrestleMania. Another reason why Riddle may lose the US Championship is that WWE was never keen on making him the champion in the first place. As per WON, Keith lee was set to become the man to take the US Championship from Bobby Lashley.
