Madcap Moss was working in NXT for the majority of his career until he was called up to the main roster. He was known as Riddick Moss at first and became WWE 24/7 Champion prior to taking time off during the pandemic. He eventually returned with a new name and aligned himself with Happy Corbin.
Moss eventually had enough of Corbin and turned babyface, as he started feuding with Corbin Madcap Moss went on to defeat Happy Corbin at WrestleMania Backlash. He then beat Corbin more times, including the Last Laugh match.
While speaking on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Madcap Moss revealed that he came to know about working with Happy Corbin while he was still rehabbing his injury.
“He was in NXT when I first got there, and honestly, me and him were always really cool. We weren’t super close. But he rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. I actually appreciated his take on the business. It was just a very businesslike approach. When he went up to the main roster, I really started to admire his work. I learned about what we did, and just the way he worked, the way he got the most out of everything that he did, the way he protected his finish, all of these things.”
“I was thoroughly entertained by the Broke Corbin stuff. I had no idea that they were thinking about putting me with him or anything like that. I was training at the Performance Center, kind of finishing up my rehab and they told me then what I was going to do.”
“Corbin and I had a bit of a friendship beforehand, but we weren’t super close. We had kind of admired each other’s work and what we could bring to the table from afar. I couldn’t imagine having a better person to help bring me along and kind of teach me in my early stages of this character.”
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. If anything, he certainly seems to have the WWE office behind him.
