Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that Lesnar and Riddle were involved in a backstage verbal confrontation at the Royal Rumble event.
Apparently, Lesnar and Riddle passed each other in the hall and “a tense encounter ensued.” Brock might have wanted to clue Riddle in on “the reality of the situation” that they share.
]Details are scarce at this time, but sources tell us Lesnar and Riddle passed each other while walking backstage and a tense encounter ensued. One source says Brock saw Matt and wanted him to know the reality of the situation between them.
This was not part of the show. There was nothing in this report about anything being filmed either. We will continue to monitor this on-going situation as more information is made known.
