It all started when Riddle noticed that Goldberg had blocked on social media. The reason for that was likely due to Riddle’s comments back in 2017 when Riddle gave an interview with Sporting News where Riddle was critical of Goldberg. He would then take some shots at Goldberg following his match with The Undertaker at the WWE Super ShowDown pay-per-view event.
Riddle spoke with talkSPORT at the Download Festival on Saturday where he talked about his issues with the WWE Hall of Famer and elaborated on his beliefs as to why he’s not a fan of Goldberg’s.
“The thing for me is, and one of the reasons I was never a fan of Goldberg in the beginning when everybody was like ‘oh, he’s so good!’ I was like ‘no, he’s terrible, he’s hurting people’ and there’s nothing else. He just has three-minute matches. And that was my thing and when people say ‘who was your favourite wrestler?’ I really don’t have one. I just liked really good wrestling.”
“That’s why I fight and I do that. So for me, I don’t care how much money he makes, I’m just glad people were entertained. But, stick to your wheelhouse, bro. And stop headbutting doors before you wrestle. And I’m not hating – I’m not hating – I’m just spitting facts and these are all facts and things he should take into consideration. And not just for me, not because he got made fun of, but for his health as well.”
