Matt Riddle came from the UFC world where he learned some very punishing moves in the cage. He is a pro wrestler now, but that ability to get down in a shoot fight never left the Original Bro.
While speaking with BleacherReport, Matt Riddle addressed recent comments that Roman Reigns made where he took credit for the success of SummerSlam. Riddle and Randy Orton captured championship gold during that that show as well. In the end, Riddle expressed a belief that he can beat up Roman in a shoot fight.
“No disrespect to Roman, he seems like a swell fella, but at the same time, it’s like when people say they’re a good parent. You know what? If you were a good parent, your kids would be telling you you’re a good parent. When he’s saying ‘Acknowledge me’ or ‘I move the needle,’ no, you don’t. You’re related to The Rock. Shut up. Like, I’m not impressed, I can beat you up in a real fight. So, shut your mouth. You’re not moving needles. I’m the real stallion, RK-Bro is moving the merch, we’re moving the needle, and that’s it. I don’t want to say too much, I’m not trying to get in trouble. Hey, hats off to him. He’s amazing at what he does. I do like what he does, but at the same time, it’s like, get off your high horse. You’re in that spot for a reason. You’re not a bro. You’re second generation. I’m first generation.
We’ll have to see what’s next for Riddle and Roman Reigns. They are on different brands right now, but the fact is that a WWE Draft is coming in October, so you never know what the future can bring in WWE.
