On Sunday night, Pro Wrestling Sheet reported that there was a verbal altercation between Matt Riddle and Brock Lesnar.
Riddle has been trash-talking Lesnar for years but this was the first time that they’ve had a chance to meet face-to-face and Lesnar got his point across to Riddle.
Alex McCarthy from talkSPORT was backstage at the Royal Rumble and he was able to speak with sources close to the situation on what went down. McCarthy says he was told that Lesnar approached Riddle and grabbed his shoulder to get his attention.
Lesnar said, “Kid, you might as well stop saying my name and tagging me in sh*t because you and I will never work together. Ever.”
Tensions did not rise beyond that and Riddle remained cool and composed during the exchange. Riddle was not showcased much in the Men’s Royal Rumble match but WWE officials claim that he is not being punished and what he did in the match was what was planned for him.
There have been many instances of worked shoots in pro wrestling with backstage altercations being used to work the wrestlers. At this point, everything looks to be legitimate but it would not surprise me if a match is made at some point between these two wrestlers.
