Matt Riddle is one of the most beloved babyfaces in WWE right now, but his life outside of the company could be considered to be like a heel. Riddle recently made headlines after accusing security officer of assaulting him at JFK Airport, but the whole thing turned around on him in a big way. Now it appears even Jim Cornette believes Riddle should take a break and gather his thoughts.

Matt Riddle posted on Instagram that he was “sexually assaulted” by an officer at JFK Airport. After lot of backlash, the Original Bro would end up deleting that post with the accusation.

As Ringside News exclusively reported, multiple attempts were made to de-escalate the situation with Matt Riddle before things got physical. It was also told to us that Matt Riddle appeared to be “heavily intoxicated” at the time.”

Matt Riddle was allegedly disruptive and caused officers to be called. An investigation was then launched by WWE into the whole ordeal. While speaking on a recent episode of the Jim Cornette Experience, Jim Cornette talked about Matt Riddle’s latest drama and stated that he believes the Original Bro should take a break and gather his thoughts instead of doing such things in public.


“Maybe he just needs to get his s*** together. Maybe that the dull-witted ‘Hey bro’ thing is not him working. Maybe he’s just dull-witted and doesn’t f****** think before he does anything in a public place. Maybe he could just take a little break, come back and regather his thoughts.”

Matt Riddle didn’t appear on RAW after the JFK Airport fiasco, but reports suggested it was because he suffered from “a double ear infection and bronchitis.” He is expected to appear on next week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. We’ll have to wait and see whether Riddle will be able to get his act together in the end.
