Matt Riddle had quite story to tell about his experience at JFK airport, and he wasn’t happy how everything went down. He accused airport security of sexually assaulting him, but then more information started to come out about the situation.

Ringside News exclusively reported that we were told that multiple attempts were made to de-escalate the situation with Matt Riddle before things got physical. This situation at JFK airport was described as “a disturbance” caused by Riddle.

It was also told to us that Matt Riddle appeared to be “heavily intoxicated” at the time. Riddle then brushed off suggestion to lodge a formal complaint. He was allegedly disruptive and caused officers to be called.

Ringside News reached out to our sources in WWE to inquire about the Matt Riddle situation. We are told that WWE is currently investigating the matter.


This story seemed to be one-sided when Matt Riddle first signal blasted the situation to the world. He claimed that he was sexually assaulted and posted an image of that officer on his Instagram account along with a story. He has since deleted the post about the accusation.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
