As it was noted earlier today, there are big plans for Matt Riddle’s main roster debut tonight on WWE Friday Night SmackDown.
Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that Riddle is scheduled to feud with AJ Styles and he will be in the segment tonight that includes Styles celebrating winning the Intercontinental Championship last week.
Alvarez said, “I believe that Matt Riddle is involved in the AJ Styles Intercontinental Championship Title presentation because I heard that the plan was for Matt Riddle to be feuding with AJ Styles right out of the gate.”
Also, as noted earlier, Riddle is no longer being advertised for SmackDown on the main preview section on WWE.com after allegations made against him. However, he is still listed on the bottom of the secondary preview page. SmackDown was taped last Monday so they would have to edit his segment if they have any plans to take him off the show. As of a few hours ago, his segment was still scheduled to air.
Alvarez added, “I have been told that at this moment, the Matt Riddle segment is still scheduled to air. I know that WWE is looking into this.”
In addition to the segment with AJ Styles, WWE is also advertising Mandy Rose for Miz TV and the return of Bray Wyatt.
