Reason US Title Match Was Moved Up; Elias to Take Samoe Joe’s Spot

— The finals of the recently completed US Title tournament between Bobby Roode and Jinder Mahal was moved up to Smackdown likely either due to time constraints or WWE wanting to get both of them into the actual Royal Rumble match. At this time, it doesn’t appear as if WWE is planning any sort of rematch between the two.

— Before Samoa Joe suffered his foot injury, there was expected to be some sort of angle between him and Cena at the Royal Rumble. However, with Joe out of the match it appears that spot will now be given to Elias instead and he will do whatever spot it was that Joe was originally supposed to do with Cena at the PPV
