After several weeks of getting one over on the United States champion, Sheamus, Ricochet and Humberto Carrillo were set to face off in a No. 1 contender’s match.
The Celtic Warrior was ringside to watch this match unfold, complaining about his nose injury. By the end of the match, he wrote them both off as unworthy to be the next challenger.
This is because Ricochet and Carrillo fought to a double count-out. As a draw, neither has been crowned the next in line for a title shot.

Normally, an announcement is made ruling both men equal challengers to set up a Triple Threat match down the line. Since Sheamus is out of action, that may have been held off to stretch for time and may be addressed next week or even after that.
Of course, if any other information comes out, we’ll keep you updated and fill you in on who will square off for the United States Championship in the near future!
