Matt Riddle recently spoke to TMZ Sports at the airport, where he was asked questions regarding the relationship between NXT and the main roster.
The most prominent question Riddle was asked was why he believes NXT continuously does so well compared to RAW or SmackDown Live which keeps on getting criticized.
Riddle then gave the explanation that NXT’s environment is different compared to the main roster. Everything the superstars do in NXT feels fresh and far more believable than what happens at the main roster, with their watered-down product.
“Yeah. I think we’re just different. I know that’s the easy answer- but I’d say like, we’re different, we’re new, we’re fresh and we’re not the same kind of watered-down child’s product that WWE is kinda turned into a lot. So…if you go watch us, even though it’s scripted a lot of the time, it’s more real. It’s more believable.”
To fix the main roster’s problems, Riddle believes that they should call up more NXT superstars so that the landscape of the main roster will continue changing and keep the product interesting.
“I would say we’d have to bring in some of the talent- and not like just a couple then and there. You’d have to bring enough in so we could make the other roster members change.”
