Matt Riddle finally ended up in WWE after a long time in the indies and making a huge name for himself. Now the King Of Bros is poised to attack the NXT Universe with his own brand of pro wrestling.
Triple H recently spoke on a media call and was asked why WWE changed their mind about Riddle. He previously didn’t have much of a shot with WWE because he was fired from UFC for failing two drug tests and has been an outspoken advocate for the legalization of marijuana for a while now.
“I think he’s ready to come in and get brought the rest of the way. I also think he’s matured as a person which, we’ll find out.”
“But I think he’s matured as a person and he’s realized where he wants to get to in the business as opposed to just having fun being in the business, there’s a difference. So we think now’s the right time, but time will tell.”
“He’s a very, very talented guy, the sky is the limit and you know, we’ll see what he can do. It’s an interesting thing because I think sometimes people think that we just bring them in and just go with it, it’s not that simple. Not everybody makes it, not everything works. There are a lot of factors that go into it, so we’ll see.”
“I believe in him and I believe he has a lot of potential and talent, but again just like everybody else as they walk in the door, we’ll see.”
When Triple H says time will tell that could mean a lot of things, after all, Riddle and his unique brand arrived in NXT wearing a baseball hat and flip-flops. But that’s part of who he is. Hopefully, he’ll be able to prove himself and do the great things we know he’s capable of in WWE.
