Matt Riddle surprised fans in Sanford Florida this weekend and he made his NXT debut wearing his wife’s shorts. This was an interesting clothing choice, but for a guy like Riddle who showed up in the crowd wearing flip-flop sandals and a baseball cap, you never know what he’ll be wearing.
Riddle appeared on The Main Event recently where he discussed his NXT in-ring debut and why he made his clothing decisions. Apparently, it all had to do with the sponsorships he used to have.
He said that until WWE okay’s him wearing sponsors on his MMA-style trunks like what he wore on the indies, he decided to sport some multi-colored tights instead. It just so happened that he got those tights from his wife.
Riddle did wear a jacket to the ring with the SPLX logo on the back, but at least he was thinking about the trunks. After all, Brock Lesnar and Jimmy Johns might be the only partnership allowed in WWE.
