Matt Riddle had a lot of issue in WWE, and he didn’t win over many friends. Brock Lensar was one to tell him to keep his mouth shut about it, but it wasn’t a nice situation when it happened.

In a recent virtual signing with Signed by Superstars, ex-WWE Superstar Matt Riddle delved into the backstage incident involving Brock Lesnar during the 2020 Royal Rumble.

It seems that Matt Riddle had an issue with Brock Lesnar backstage at the Royal Rumble. Lesnar’s bodyguard offered to help the Beast Incarnate out when it came to handling Riddle, but Lesnar had it taken care of.

“First time I met him, I had talked a lot of trash, so I kind of had it coming. I thought it was all in good spirit and good fun, plus I was on the indies, never thought I’d even get signed.


So I’m at Royal Rumble, my first time on the main roster, I’m super stoked, and I see Brock Lesnar, and he walks next to me. And I’m like, ‘What’s up dude?’ Then all of a sudden, his security guard, who I’m good friends with now, came up behind us and he goes, ‘You need help with this?’ And I’m like, ‘What?’ And then Brock grabs me by the neck, and he didn’t like ragdoll me, but he grabbed me by the neck, then proceeded to tell me we would never work together and keep my f*cking mouth shut.”

Matt Riddle rubbed Brock Lesnar the wrong way by publicly politicking for match against the Beast Incarnate. Riddle was then told to stop tweeting at main roster talent like that while he was in NXT, because there were no such plans for a match, and Lesnar didn’t like it.

Matt Riddle’s time in WWE got off to a bit of a rocky start. He threw some big shade at Goldberg, someone he had buried in interviews prior to signing with WWE. The two were able to spend some “quality time” together later on.
