After signing with WWE, Matt Riddle did not take long to become a highlight of WWE television, whether it was in NXT or the main roster. His in-ring skills and cool character work have helped him gain popularity.
After his main roster call up, Matt Riddle was eventually engaged in a program with Randy Orton. It ended up elevating him to a whole new level as they became one of the most popular tag teams in recent memory.
Riddle also uses Randy Orton’s mannerisms and even his RKO. While speaking with Metro.co.uk, Seth Rollins called out Matt Riddle for lacking originality and copying Randy Orton.
“That’s the thing – I wanna know who this guy is. I wanna know who is beyond being just Randy’s bro, you know?
Obviously the audience took a big liking to him based on his relationship with Randy, but now we don’t know if Randy’s ever coming back. We got no clue what Randy’s medical situation is.’
He’s out here having to stand by himself, but he’s still out here doing Randy’s moves, doing Randy’s poses. I’d like to know, who is Riddle? Who is this Original Bro?
I’d love to see something original about him. I’m gonna push that out of him one way or another. If he doesn’t wanna respond, that he’s gonna fall by the wayside or he’s gonna rise to the occasion – we shall see.’”
We will have to wait and see whether Matt Riddle will end up defeating Seth Rollins or not at WWE SummerSlam. Fans are certainly excited about the match.
