During the Elimination Chamber 2021 broadcasts via WWE Network, superstar John Morrison became Keith Lee’s replacement in the triple threat for the WWE United States Championship.
On the Kickoff Show that preceded the pay-per-view, we saw a showdown between John Morrison, Mustafa Ali, Ricochet, and Elias. The four Superstars traded attacks until Morrison took advantage of a distraction from RETRIBUTION to iron Ali after a Roll-Up for the victory by the count of three.

In this way, John Morrison obtains the position of Keith Lee in the fight for the WWE United States Championship. “The Ayatolah of Sexy” will face current champion Bobby Lashley and Riddle in a triple threat. Recall that the match was originally announced last week when Keith Lee defeated “Bro”, and was subsequently attacked by Bobby Lashley to knock him unconscious.
Keith Lee Was Discharged From Elimination Chamber
Within hours of starting Elimination Chamber, rumors began circulating regarding Keith Lee’s withdrawal from the event . The fighter did not appear on Monday Night RAW last Monday, but WWE waited until the last minute to break the news. The real reasons why “The Limitless” has been absent from the company’s programming are still unknown.
