Riddle said on Monday that he is coming to SmackDown to find Roman Reigns. The former UFC star has his sights set on the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. One pitch involved a very interesting matchup stemming from that angle.

Sami Zayn has been an associate of The Bloodline for some time. Riddle has already wrestled several matches with The Usos. With Randy Orton sidelined, Zayn may be inserted as Riddle’s latest dance partner to continue the feud.

Fightful Select reported behind their paywall that internal plans are for Riddle to appear for the blue brand tonight. The pitch that was going around involves Riddle getting into a match with Sami Zayn. If Sami wins, Riddle would be banned from the show.

“Internal plans as of Thursday night called for Riddle to appear on Friday night’s Smackdown to pursue his feud with The Bloodline. The pitch that we’d heard of as of Thursday was for Riddle to be involved in tonight’s Smackdown in an angle with Sami Zayn.


Details are few and far between as of now, but one of the angles presented was Sami Zayn making an attempt to get Riddle off of Smackdown by beating him in a match with the stipulation that if Zayn wins, Riddle is barred from Smackdown.”

Those plans could change between now and the time SmackDown goes on the air. Riddle will likely be featured either way. Time will tell if he can get his hands on the Tribal Chief.
