#6 John Morrison vs Mustafa Ali vs Elias vs Ricochet - Elimination Chamber 2021
After Keith Lee withdrew from the Triple Threat US Championship match at Elimination Chamber, a fatal-four-way to determine his replacement took place on the pre-show of the PPV. While the usual pre-show matches are mostly skippable, the four competitors in this bout - Mustafa Ali, Ricochet, John Morrison and Elias - had a pretty fun and entertaining clash.
The four Superstars worked very hard, with Morrison standing out thanks to his high-flying offense. Since his return to the company, many fans have questioned the booking of Morrison, but the company wisely handed him the win here. Ensuring that he finally got to showcase his skills in a prominent match on the card.
Even in a loss, Ricochet was protected as he was taken out by RETRIBUTION, while Elias had his moments in the early stages of the match. As for Mustafa Ali, it made sense for him not to win here, as he's heading towards a possible WrestleMania clash against Kofi Kingston.
