Matt Riddle thinks he’s got heat behind the scenes because of the ‘old school mentality’ of his top roster colleagues
Matt Riddle believes the “old school mentality” is why he generated heat behind the scenes after making slanderous remarks about SmackDown’s Roman Reigns.
Raw WWE Superstar Matt Riddle thinks the “old-school mentality of some of his top roster colleagues is the reason he’s been vocal behind the scenes whenever he playfully insults another WWE roster.”
In case you missed it, Riddle recently revealed that he generated heat behind the scenes after making disrespectful remarks about WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns during an interview with Bleacher Report. last month. Riddle’s trash talk came in the wake of Roman’s recent proclamation that he is responsible for making this year’s SummerSlam the most-watched SummerSlam in the event’s history. “Legitimate needle movement” Reign tweeted shortly after the figures were announced. In the aforementioned Bleacher Report interview, Riddle questioned Roman’s claims that he is a needle mover and said he could beat the Reigns star in a real fight.
“No disrespect to Roman, he looks like a good guy, but at the same time it’s like when people say they’re a good parent.”“said Riddle.”You know what? If you were a good parent, your kids would tell you that you are a good parent. When he says “Accept me” or “I move the needle”, no, you don’t. You are related to The Rock. Shut your mouth. Like, I’m not impressed, I can beat you in a real fight. So shut up,” he added.
It seemed like the outspoken Superstar was just having fun, or maybe she was trying to lay the groundwork for a potential feud with Reigns in the future. Regardless, his comments did not please some of his colleagues, whom he approached during a recent appearance on Ryan Satin’s Out Of Character show.
“I would say the biggest lessons are that it’s fun, and maybe we shouldn’t talk too much about garbageSaid half of the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions. âI wouldn’t say I got in trouble, but people are not happy when I say certain things. And I will say this; it’s not old school, but there’s that slight old school mentality on the main roster rather than a lot of other companies or the indies, where it’s like you have to watch what you say and be very respectful all the time. I try to be 100% of the time.
This isn’t the first time Riddle has taken on an older Superstar. As you may recall, the Original Bro had awkward backstage encounters with Goldberg after calling the WWE Hall Of Famer on multiple occasions.
Before Riddle became WWE Champion, he plied his trade as a legitimate MMA talent in the UFC and other promotions.
