Matt Riddle throws shade at Dana White

Prior to his wrestling career, Matt Riddle was a successful MMA fighter in the UFC. The King of Bros was fired from the company after failing three drug tests, testing positive for marijuana.

UFC President Dana White criticized Riddle harshly after his retirement from the sport back in 2013. After Riddle claimed he was treated horribly by UFC higher-ups, White responded, calling him a “weak-minded dummy.”

From 2011 to 2013, that guy was making $162,000 a year. Then he comes out and says he was treated horrible. We have health insurance here, which has never been done in the history of the world with fight promoters. The reason he’s not in the UFC was because he couldn’t pass a drug test!

You’re so weak-minded and so addicted to marijuana, that you couldn’t stay off of it enough to pass a drug test three times a year? Well, guess what dummy? They drug test in the real world, too!”

Now signed to the biggest wrestling company in the world, Riddle took a shot at White on Twitter.

Riddle’s Twitter shot comes off the reveal that he signed with NXT, which was seen in the video above.

    Didn’t I read recently Riddle said he’d quit smoking pot for a job at WWE?

    I don’t really care if someone is stoned unless they could cause accidents in the work place, like operating heavy machinery. Or if they’re unemployed and want tax payers to support their habit.

    No other issue with people smoking pot.

    Dana White is a toolbox. But so is Matt Riddle if he honestly thinks that WWE doesn’t test for pot, and doesn’t fire people who fail tests for it, even “fake pot”. Just ask Evan Bourne.

    1. Dana White is full of sh*t.
    2. There is no scientific evidence/proof that any “marijuana” is an addictive substance.
    3. in this day and age, $100,000 isn’t much, but insurance, a house, a car and maybe long over due energy bills..

    Dana White, the king of professionalism.

    Getting drug tested and caught is idiotic, but white will always be a tool.
