WWE RAW was missing Matt Riddle this week, which was very interesting. Riddle was just involved in the six-man tag team match at Backlash, where he took a pinfall from Solo Sikoa in that contest. Then he was nowhere to be seen on Monday, but there was a very good reason for that.

Matt Riddle’s name trended during WWE RAW this week, but he wasn’t even on the show this week. A video of the original bro leaked and everyone saw part of him that they can never unsee. It seems that he is well aware of this leak as well. Now, that stolen video from Snapchat has gone viral.

Ringside News reached out to ask why Matt Riddle did not appear on WWE RAW this week. This is interesting, because he did appear on RAW Talk, so he did make it to Jacksonville for the show.

We were told by a tenured member of the creative team that Matt Riddle was not scheduled for WWE RAW this week. That is why he did not appear on this week’s episode. His absence had nothing to do with that leaked video.


Matt Riddle was pretty shocked to learn about his video leak. Obviously, that video wasn’t something he wanted to go public. His ex was also pretty shocked to see this video. Matt Riddle’s ex-girlfriend also spoke out to send out hope that he gets help for his sex addiction soon.

We will have to see when Matt Riddle returns to WWE television at this point. It wouldn’t shock anyone to see him take a bit of time off, because WWE has done that in the past when Superstars went through personal issues. In the meantime, keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this still-developing story.

What’s your take on Matt Riddle’s situation? Do you think he will be able to recover from this incident to continue with WWE? Sound off in the comments!
