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 are one of the best in the company and he already has a good fan following. Despite that, he isn’t the easiest person to understand.
Matt Riddle’s character has certainly gotten over with fans thanks to his comedic timing and generally cool attitude while still being that of a stoner character. Vince McMahon wasn’t immediately on board with his character either.
While speaking with Planeta Wrestling. Matt Riddle was asked about facing off against his tag team partner Randy Orton somewhere down the line. Riddle then bragged that he has a 2-0 record against Orton.
“Well, I’ll say this, I don’t want to fight my best friend Randy right now, we are doing great. But, to be fair, I have beaten Randy twice. I beat him a couple of months ago on Raw and I beat him at Survivor Series in 2019, so technically I am 2-0 against my Viper buddy, Randy. But, like I said, right now RK-Bro is killing it, we’re on the same page, we are liking each other and I think no fight between me and Randy right now. You never know though, he is Randy, and Randy might do a Randy kind of thing and RKO me or something, but only time will tell.”
Riddle also recently stated that he feels more people hate him after he started teaming up with Randy Orton. Matt Riddle and Randy Orton are currently the RAW Tag Team Champions and continue to get a lot of focus every week. They are certainly one of the highlights of WWE television. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for them.
