Matt Riddle previously made some interesting comments about Roman Reigns. It happened when he was talking in an interview about Reigns taking credit for the success of this year’s SummerSlam.
Riddle stated that he could beat up Reigns in a real fight and Reigns wasn’t a needle-mover. At the time, it was reported there was a lot of heat in certain circles on Riddle for saying what he did.
Riddle talked about this while speaking with the International Business Times. Riddle stated that he’s not trying to rub anybody the wrong way or say anything wrong but does think what he said is factual and he was just telling the truth.
He understands that while the comments he made were factual, they weren’t the most professional things to say as Reigns is on SmackDown while he’s on Raw.
“I’m not even in that realm of competing with the Tribal Chief. He’s on another level at this moment. I think maybe I got a little too big for my britches, you know what I mean? Maybe I got a little backstage heat. Maybe a tiny bit. Unfortunately, I said some things that some people may not have liked and I’m not going to mention names, but they didn’t like it. I won’t say it again. I get it.”
Riddle ended by stating that Reigns is the Tribal Chief and everybody should acknowledge him.
