Matt Riddle appears to be on his way to the main roster. That means his match tonight on WWE NXT might be his final match in the black and gold brand. We will have to see what happens, but the most interesting part of this situation is which brand The Original Bro is reportedly going to.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez discussed Matt Riddle’s heat with Brock Lesnar. This didn’t win him any favors. It was interesting that Riddle didn’t go to RAW because Paul Heyman is such a big fan.
“The strange thing about this is that Paul Heyman is a big fan of Matt Riddle so you’d think he’s going to RAW, but this Matt Riddle/ Lesnar deal — I mean it’s weird like I’m sure there are aspects of it who are people that are just encouraging Matt Riddle to do what Matt Riddle does, but on the other side this, if anything else should tell you that this is legit because if they were trying to work together to build something up for a match I mean Matt Riddle goes to RAW.”
“Lesnar’s not around it’s not like he can say I’m not gonna share a locker room with him. Lesnar probably won’t be around until they’re running shows with fans again.”
Matt Riddle appears be be going to SmackDown. Alvarez said that he’s pretty convinced it’s because Brock Lesnar doesn’t like the Original Bro. Let’s see what happens down the line.
Matt Riddle already admitted that getting a match against Lesnar will be hard to get. It’s an uphill battle, but his goal is to create a big enough name for himself that Lesnar will eventually want the match.
