Ever since Matt Riddle signed with WWE, he has been one of the mainstays of WWE television, be it in NXT or the main roster. His in-ring skills is one of best in the company and he already has a good fan following.
Before Matt Riddle made his way to Monday Night RAW, he worked on Friday Night Smackdown. In his first match on the blue brand, Riddle squared off against AJ Styles and defeated him, in what was a huge upset.
AJ Styles would have a rematch with Riddle for the Intercontinental Championship but this time, the Phenomenal One defeated Matt Riddle with a roll up pin. While speaking to After the Bell, AJ Styles revealed a funny story about Matt Riddle from the time they both worked together.
“There was a time where my son was with us on the bus. Matt [Riddle] came in and was talking to us, and him and I were talking about- we had a match or something. Well, Matt leaves and my son goes “Oh my god, he really talks like that?” [laughs]. I said “yeah, that’s really him dude”. He’s not really changing who he is, that’s just who he is which makes it a lot easier for him to be great at what he does because all he has to do is be himself”
Matt Riddle is currently teaming up with Randy Orton and the very odd pairing is certainly a hit with fans as they are really liking the two’s dynamic. We wonder whether a proper push will mean team RK-Bro will be getting a shot at the RAW Tag Team titles eventually as AJ Styles and Omos recently called them out recently.
