Matt Riddle and Bill Goldberg do not have the best of relationships in professional wrestling. On several occasions, the two WWE Superstars have shown their dislike for each other. It seems that might have changed a big in recent memory.

Back in 2019, Riddle criticized Goldberg for being an unsafe and dangerous worker and said that he was “the worst wrestler in the business”. Riddle has also called out the WWE Hall Of Famer in the past and was not shy about it.

Riddle was also confronted by Goldberg backstage during SummerSlam, where he told Riddle that he was not ”his bro.” Goldberg also previously blocked Riddle on social media as well.

While speaking to Sony Sports India, Matt Riddle talked about his recent interaction with Goldberg on Monday Night RAW. Surprisingly enough, Goldberg and Matt Riddle had a very positive exchange on the night Goldberg challenged Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship.


“Bill Goldberg is extremely entertaining, I can’t take anything away from that but I’ll tell you this, I saw Bill the other day before he challenged Bobby Lashley and he was walking to the Gorilla Position and I was standing there and I was with Damian Priest at the time and he says hi to everybody and then Goldberg comes up to me gives me a look. He was making a face and then he goes, ‘Hey, congratulations kid….’ and I was like, ‘Oh man, Goldberg is kind of nice’, so I gave him a little handshake and he went out and challenged Bobby and then he was coming out, through Gorilla again and I was like, ‘Hey Goldberg, good stuff’ and as he gave me a fist bump he says, ‘I only need two moves’ so I was like, ‘Oh man, the guy’s still got it’.”

We will have to wait and see how Goldberg will fare in his match against Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21. Matt Riddle is not currently booked for a SummerSlam match, but that could change in the weeks to come.
