Matt Riddle and Asuka had a very interesting segment during Raw this week. Mid-way through their backstage conversation, Riddle said that he forgot what he was going to say and he scooted out of the frame leaving Asuka all alone and very confused.
Ringside News has asked around about Matt Riddle’s botch on Raw. We received very interesting responses asking why we were so sure it was a shoot.
It would definitely fit into Matt Riddle’s character to forget what he was going to say and just walk off screen.
If Matt Riddle really flubbed his lines and walked off screen, then Vince McMahon would have been livid. Odds are he wouldn’t have been on Raw Talk directly after the show. Not only did WWE plug Riddle’s Raw Talk appearance after his backstage segment, but he also appeared on the weekly post-Raw talk show.
