Matt Riddle goes after Goldberg for his performance at WWE Super Showdown

NXT’s Matt Riddle has made it known, on quite a few occasions, that he’s not what one would call a “Goldberg fan.” The King of Bros made that crystal clear today when he went after the WWE Hall of Famer during his match with the Undertaker at WWE Super Showdown.

Before the match began, Goldberg busted himself open when he slammed his head against a door prior to making his entrance. This was where Riddle took his first shot.

Later on in the match, Goldberg attempted a kneebar, which caused Riddle to post a short video calling him out for his form.

Earlier in the week, Riddle revealed that he’d been blocked on Twitter by Goldberg. He taunted the legendary superstar, clearly hoping to see a few botches at Super Showdown. It looks like he may have gotten what he wanted.

    It doesn’t matter. EVERY legend is “booked as a legend” at some point. Yes, those other guys were better wrestlers, and I never claimed to be a big Goldberg fan myself. But that doesn’t change the fact that he was a big name in the industry, and a phenomenon. In that regard, he wasn’t any different from, say, The Ultimate Warrior, who I’d argue Bill was a better wrestler than. Warrior sucked in the ring, hard. But he was booked as a fairly unstoppable monster, and there you go. Personally, I can’t stand Warrior, but I can’t say he wasn’t a huge name in the business.

    The point was, that Matt Riddle should worry a bout himself, and stop trying get a little “heat” and generate a little interest for himself, taking shots on Twitter at a guy who could literally not care less about him. Regardless of details, Goldberg was a major star. There’s a strong change Mr. Matt Riddle never will be.

    I think I speak for everybody when I say who?……

    There is a famous story about William/Steven Regal going for a long match with him in WCW and officials blew up over it as it showed why he did those short sharp matches. Regal got in so much crap over that.

    I wouldn’t call him a nobody

    Goldberg was booked as a legend. People like Flair, Hart, Austin wrestled. Goldberg was an entrance a couple of moves, probably a couple botches and end match. He likely never wrestled a match longer than 15 minutes.

    Yep, that guy is a nobody in pro wrestling, Goldberg is a legend

    No wonder why Goldberg block him, he’s a dumbass

    Goldberg is old and along with Taker honestly has no business still wrestling, especially not for an oblivious/ungrateful/paid Saudi Arabian crowd.

    But he’s still a former major star in the business, who had a huge place in the business at one time. Two things Matt Riddle will never accomplish. So maybe he should shut his trap and worry about his own career, instead of trying to trash talk someone who couldn’t care less about him, like a coward, over social media.

    Just saying.
