United States Champion Bobby Lashley suffered his first clean loss in months this week on WWE Monday Night Raw.
Lashley had Matt Riddle in the full nelson submission and he forced Riddle to tap out but the referee was distracted as Lashley celebrated what he thought was another win.
As Lashley celebrated, the referee informed him that the match was not over and Riddle took the opportunity to roll up Lashley for the win. This was a non-title match which means that Riddle will get a title shot, likely at the Royal Rumble.
The pin is significant because WWE had been making sure to protect Lashley for most of 2020 by not having him take pinfall losses. That streak ended this week on the first Raw of 2021.
