Matt Riddle was released from the UFC and he is still displeased with that. He also didn’t have anything good to say about Dana White. However, he has a chance of competing in the UFC again as WWE seems to be open to the idea.
During an NXT TakeOver: XXV media call, Triple H was asked about the chance of Matt Riddle making a return to the UFC. WWE is willing to let Riddle compete in the UFC if he ever has the desire again.
“We’d talk to Matt about it and see what the opportunity was. Is it something we would like to do? Is it something he would like to do? There’s no set in stone template in how you deal with this stuff. We have talent within the system that get offers to do a lot of things. Even internationally, we have talent from India, but he’s like a television and movie star in India, but his dream to be a wrestler. Every now and then he goes home and stars in a movie and stays in shape, continues to do everything he can do while he’s there and comes back and gets his training. If the opportunity is there, and it’s the right thing, we talk to them about it.”
Matt Riddle is one of the most popular superstars in NXT and has been competing in terrific matches as of late. It would be interesting to see him compete in the UFC again.
