Madcap Moss was working in NXT for the majority of his career until he finally got called up to the main roster. Back then he was just known as Riddick Moss and did not really see much success there. Moss also credited Paul Heyman for his WWE main roster call up.

He was called up to Monday Night RAW in 2020, but didn’t do much there either. Following his return after a long hiatus, Moss was rebranded and partnered up with Happy Corbin. That eventually led to a feud between the two, which saw Moss winning multiple times.

While speaking to NBC Sports Boston, Madcap Moss talked about Paul Heyman giving him huge props in the past, calling him a future main eventer. He also credited Heyman for his main roster call-up.

“The analytical side of me that might be skeptical of, maybe I’m just hyping myself up in my head a little too much, maybe I’m not as good as I think I am… those go out the window when you’ve got someone like Paul Heyman [saying that], who is an absolute legend in so many ways. As a performer, as a promoter, as a judge of talent in this industry, and when he’s saying those things about me, going out of his way to say those things about me, it gives me a vote of confidence that I am on the right track, and I can do all of those things with the best of them.


It also motivates me to make him live up to his word, and part of that is because I just want to prove him right, and I appreciate him saying that, but he’s also a big reason I’m in the position that I am today. He was a big part of getting me an opportunity on Raw at the beginning of 2020, and so I owe Paul for that, and want to prove him right in a number of ways.”

Madcap Moss also aspires to carry WWE like Batista. We will have to wait and see whether Moss will become a main eventer in the future or not.
