Matt Riddle and Bill Goldberg did not have the most amicable of relationships in pro wrestling. On several occasions, the two WWE Superstars have shown their dislike for each other. Back in 2019, Riddle criticized Goldberg for being an unsafe and dangerous worker and said that he was “the worst wrestler in the business.”

Now the two can have a chat in the Gorilla Position without having any issues. Riddle has also called out the WWE Hall of Famer in the past and was not shy about it. Riddle was also confronted by Goldberg backstage during SummerSlam in 2019, where he told Riddle that he was “not his bro.” Goldberg also blocked Riddle on social media in the past.

Goldberg previously revealed in an interview that he still appreciates Matt Riddle even if he doesn’t necessarily like Riddle. The former NXT star stated that he understands why Goldberg doesn’t like him as a person.

While speaking with Prosiebienmaxx on Instagram, Matt Riddle recalled his backstage confrontation with Goldberg during SummerSlam 2019. He claimed that Goldberg caught him off guard.

“Yeah, Goldberg is, look, if there’s one word to sum up Goldberg it would have be intense, right? The guy’s pretty intense, you know? And yeah, our encounter was intense and I was not expecting it, it caught me a little off guard. But, once I realized what was going on, I kinda threw it back at him too. It is what it is.”

Booker T also believes Matt Riddle will be a world champion in WWE. We’ll have to see if Riddle will defeat Seth Rollins at SummerSlam this month or not.
