Matt Riddle and Bill Goldberg’s don’t have the most amicable of relationships in pro wrestling. On several occasions, the two WWE Superstars have shown their dislike for each other. It seems that might have changed 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.” Now the two can have a chat in the Gorilla Position without having any issues.
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 blocked Riddle on social media in the past.
Goldberg previously revealed in an interview that he still appreciates Matt Riddle even if he doesn’t necessarily like Riddle. Riddle stated that he understood why Goldberg doesn’t like him as person.
While speaking “Out of Character” with Ryan Satin, Matt Riddle talked about Goldberg and revealed that he isn’t a fan of Goldberg’s in-ring style but still has a lot of respect for him.
“I talk a lot of trash. But at the end of the day, when you get to know me, in the the past, even while working with other people, they’re probably gonna bring me up and talk about me. I’m not that bad. They understand what I’m doing eventually. They get it, or at least Goldberg, I believe, gets it. And I think he also respects me.”
“And if I’m being honest, I respect Goldberg. I respected him the whole time. It’s just I’m not a huge fan of his style, you know, professional wrestling in the ring. I like his promos, I like his movies. I like his moves. He’s really good at his spear when he does it, you know. But I’m just not a fan of some of his technical wrestling. But I respect his aura and I respect what he brings to the game every time, I do.”
Matt Riddle previously detailed his most recent interaction with Goldberg, which went surprisingly well. We certainly wonder if Riddle and Goldberg will ever compete against each other in the squared circle as well. That would be a dream match many fans would love to see.
