Riddle had the opportunity of a lifetime on Friday’s episode of SmackDown. The former UFC star challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Riddle came up short and took some serious damage in the process.

As Riddle looked to finish off Roman Reigns with an RKO, Reigns caught him with a brutal spear. That was enough for the three count, which means Riddle cannot challenge Reigns for the title again. On tonight’s Raw, Riddle is expected to show the aftermath of Reigns’ brutality.

In an update behind Fightful’s paywall, it was noted that Riddle will be selling a rib injury after his match with Roman Reigns. That is the initial plan for tonight’s episode of Raw. It will be interesting to see Riddle’s reaction to the huge defeat.

“After Riddle lost his title match Friday, the plan was for him to sell his ribs due to the spear that put him away.”


Riddle has been flying solo recently. His RK-Bro partner, Randy Orton, is facing an extended absence due to an injury. The team could be split up upon his return.

Tonight’s episode of Raw will also feature a women’s Money in the Bank qualifying match between Becky Lynch and Asuka. Ezekiel has promised a live performance by his older brother, Elias as well. It should be another jam-packed show, and we’ll have full results if you can’t watch right here at Ringside News.
