Goldberg on Matt Riddle: “He’s like a booger stuck in my nose”

Goldberg and Matt Riddle had a tensed backstage confrontation last year at SummerSlam. Riddle, who has been a vocal critique of Goldberg’s work in the ring, has also wanted to face the Goldberg for quite a while.

During their confrontation, Goldberg and Riddle exchanged a few words and implications about a potential fight were also made. All in all, it was an awkward run-in that was heated since both people aren’t fans of one another.

Goldberg recently appeared on Israel’s Total Slam podcast and there he was asked about his thoughts on Riddle. The former Universal Champion said that Riddle is a “booger” that gets caught in your nose.

He also stated that Riddle’s antics don’t affect his life in any manner.

He [Riddle] is like a booger that gets caught in your nose. He’s just annoying and won’t go away.

He has nothing to do, no bearing whatsoever on Golberg’s life. Period. End of story.

Goldberg is all set to face the Fiend Bray Wyatt on this week’s WWE Super ShowDown.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Vince didn’t even know they had Riddle under contract. I’m not sure Vince could even name everyone on Raw and Smackdown.

    …OR, Riddle is actually quite smart and realises that Vince actually loves injecting real-life tension into wrestling angles.

    I’m giving him a lot of credit, but it’s a thought.

    Riddle is either too stupid to realize or doesn’t care that the way you become a big deal is by beating big names. If he kept his mouth shut and Vince saw money in it, there’s at least a chance Vince would go for Riddle vs Lesnar in a retirement match or a Riddle vs Goldberg match. Lesnar and Goldberg don’t need the money, so even if Vince does bring that idea up to them, Riddle has burned those bridges and I doubt either man would agree to a match with any sort of competitive match with Riddle, regardless of who went over.
