Matt Riddle’s name trended during WWE RAW this week, but his career in the squared circle had nothing to do with it. A video of the original bro leaked and everyone saw a part of him that they can never unsee. It seems that he is well aware of this leak as well.
Matt Riddle was pretty shocked to learn about his video leak. Obviously, that video wasn’t something he wanted out there. In fact, we have obtained information about where that video came from.
Riddle sent that video to a person on Snapchat, so this was not a hack. Saraya suffered a terrible hack years ago, and so have others like Charlotte Flair, Maria Kanellis, and Rebel; but Matt Riddle willing sent that video to someone via Snapchat. The person who received that video from Riddle then downloaded it from Snapchat and shared it.
There is a way to record videos and save photos from Snapchat without alerting the sender. We will not share those methods, but it can be done. That being said, Matt Riddle may have thought that video went away after 24 hours, like all of his other messages on the social media app.
Matt Riddle may have been adversely affected by the spread of this video on social media, as it appears to have been done with malicious intent. It could be helpful for him to explore the possibility of legal action under the revenge porn laws in some states, as a potential course of action.
This is also not a situation with AI technology. Although face masking is becoming popular, the quality of those edits are not up to par yet. That was 100% Matt Riddle in the video that spread around online.
Matt Riddle is coming off a loss at Backlash, where Solo Sikoa pinned him in Puerto Rico. Interestingly enough, Riddle was not on RAW this week as the red brand introduced her rosters after the 2023 WWE Draft. We have not received confirmation that Riddle was pulled from RAW this week, but he was absent and did appear on RAW Talk later on.
