In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley discussed several topics and revealed that he would be interested in a WWE NXT Fight Pit style match against Riddle if they were presented with such an opportunity.

“I thought the United States title was perceived for a long time as just another title, but it has so many great names behind it. I’m legit as it gets and I take a lot of pride in defending this title, especially against guys like Matt Riddle and Keith Lee. I saw Riddle’s idea for a Fight Pit and I’d love to do something like that for the U.S. Title, it won’t change the outcome, but it would be a lot of fun.”
