Over the past two years, Matt Riddle, now simply called Riddle by WWE, has had a rather stormy relationship with several colleagues in the backstage of the company, with some friction that has also emerged in an obvious way and with two close fights that have kept the people on their toes.
backstage of two Big Four of the federation. In fact, in the last two years, Riddle has been at the center of numerous complaints within the WWE roster, with the jokes, insults and teasing from the former NXT tag team champion and the main roster that have infuriated athletes of the caliber of Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg, who also went face to face with the boy to understand what his problems were and to talk to each other about it.
After having had very close encounters with the two legendary athletes, in the backstage at Summerslam two years ago and in that of the Royal Rumble last year, Riddle does not seem to have learned his lesson and has indeed increased the dose several times against the WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg.
Goldberg opens up on Riddle
Although in the last period the proximity to the veteran Randy Orton seems to have made the young Riddle back on the right path, there would be someone who still has a few pebbles in his shoe to want to take off.
We are talking about WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg. Da Man, in his last interview with the Bleacher Report microphones, wanted to seriously promise them to the former Raw Tag Team Champion, saying: "I think Riddle and I have had quite a bit of controversy in the past.
I would like to punch him two more good punches in the face" At the moment, we don't know if Goldberg wanted to send a message to the Monday Night Raw athlete currently feuding against Seth Rollins, with WWE using this material for a future feud between them or if the sentence was launched there only as a joke, to play down the previous resentment between the two athletes.
Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, the 55-year-old superstar recalled an iconic episode of Nitro in July 1998. "In the wrestling business, you do a lot of cross-promotion, and these guys are as smart as possible as far as getting the product out there.
So I honestly picked up the phone and called every one of my teammates and said, ‘Listen, dude. Anyone that wants to come down, let’s do it and have a blast.’"
