Hogan has already been confirmed to appear on the show. During the call, he was asked which wrestler he thinks is the next big superstar for the company. This is where he named Matt Riddle.
“Right now there’s another guy that’s stumbling into that situation. You know, acting like he doesn’t know what’s going on but he’s smart as hell,” Hogan said. ”That’s the “Bro. I’ve been watching him and he’s really got good instincts. He’s really got a good aptitude for understanding what needs to be done, you know. It’s all about instincts and timing. His timing is off a little bit but it’s starting to come each and every week so, I mean, he would be the next one I’d put my money on.”
Riddle found success in NXT before being called up to the main roster earlier this year on SmackDown. At first, WWE wanted to put Kurt Angle as Riddle’s manager, but Angle turned down the offer.
Riddle has since been drafted to Raw and is teaming up with Jeff Hardy. WWE may have long-term plans for the pair as the company recently filed a trademark for their tag team name.
