Matt Riddle was called up from NXT to Friday Night Smackdown and received a push from the beginning. However, that push seems to have been put on hold according to several reports.
Seth Rollins was drafted to Friday Night Smackdown following the first night of the WWE Draft this year. He appeared during the WWE Watch Along during the first night.
Despite being on the blue brand, it seems Rollins has no interest in facing Matt Riddle.
“I’ve got no interest in facing Matt Riddle at any point in my career, so he can go to Raw as far as I’m concerned.”
It seems there could be real heat between Riddle and Rollins. During Survivor Series weekend last year, Matt Riddle was trash talking several WWE Superstars and that included Rollins.
Riddle’s wife Lisa had also written a post on Instagram, essentially bodyshaming female WWE Superstars. She used a picture of Becky Lynch from behind to explain her point of calling them “straight skinny jiggly fat.” While his wife deleted the post, it was screen-captured and shown online.
“calling out multiple Main Roster Divas over the past couple of weeks for being straight skinny jiggly fat (not saying they aren’t beautiful, just saying SQUAT). It’s funny because there have been multiple female wrestlers that have asked to train with me. Each one of them look great in their gear. Clearly they know what they are doing (especially if they want to train with yours truly ). ALL females freaking SQUAT and go HARD! I do not have many photos of my rear end in minimal clothing besides these two. Here is a comparison of me, not caring what I look like, just trying to be strong a decent Olympic Lifter, and a mom of 3 vs two females getting paid a TON of money for how they look. Rant over”
