Matt Riddle has been through a lot, and much of it was in the public eye. His blow-up at JFK airport caused a lot of attention, and then he was fired from WWE a short time later. Still, Riddle had someone in WWE for a while that helped him through some rough patches.

During an appearance on The Kurt Angle Show, Matt Riddle spoke highly of Orton’s resurgence in WWE after his Survivor Series comeback. He highlighted his on-point physical condition, flawless execution of RKOs, and overall agility. Orton did come back with a fire, and Riddle saw it.

While reflecting on their partnership, Riddle couldn’t thank Orton enough for the shared experiences and the impact it had on his career. He also helped the Original Bro out during some tough times.

“He really helped me out through a lot of tough times because I was going through a divorce at the time and everything else, and he’s been through a similar situation, and he was just a real brother and especially, you know, when you’re on the road, it’s not like I can call anybody.”


To have him there and be that supportive, because you know how Randy can be, and for him to be as supportive to me, it was nice. Randy has a spot in my heart forever.”

Matt Riddle certainly went through his share of bad times, even before his WWE release. In fact, some of his darkest were during that time with WWE, and Randy Orton saw him through some of that.

As you recall, Matt Riddle’s ex, Daniella Petrow, suggested that his current fiancé, Misha Montana, was the start of his real problems. The drama between them is very loud and in the public eye.

The King of Bros’ ex-girlfriend dropped a post that said she had “tears of joy” after Riddle’s release. Of course, this prompted Misha Montana to tear into Riddle’s ex. We also can’t forget the controversy surrounding his leaked sex tape. That also wasn’t a good look for the Original Bro, and it was a hard time to get though.

Now, Riddle seems to be doing better, as he calls his own shots. For more on this story, and many more, please keep it tuned with us here at Ringside News.
