Matt Riddle and Bill Goldberg had a pretty rocky relationship. 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 actually speak in the Gorilla Position without having any issues. Riddle has also called out Goldberg 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 “Bleacher Report” regarding a future match, Goldberg stated that he wants to pop Matt Riddle in the face.
“I think Riddle and I have had a little bit of a controversial past. I’d love to pop him in the face a couple of times.”
Matt Riddle was also caught off guard by Goldberg confronting him backstage. We’ll have to wait and see whether they will end up facing each other or not.
