WWE NXT star Matt Riddle continues to speak on wanting to face former WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.
He did so again when talking with The New York Post to promote the NXT TakeOver: XXV event on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT that will air on the WWE Network. At this show, he’ll take on Roderick Strong in a singles match.
In the past, Riddle has promised to retire Lesnar from active competition inside of the squared circle under the WWE banner. This has been a match that Riddle has called for over the past few years due to their MMA backgrounds.
Now, he has vowed to break Lesnar should they wrestle against each other.
“At the beginning it was just a gimmick. You know, a goal of mine,” Riddle said. “One, I wanted to do it when I saw him beat The Undertaker. So he beat the streak at WrestleMania. So right there he solidified himself in WWE history just by doing that. And then when I see him, I just see a guy who’s kind of like bullied everyone from Day 1, and I hate bullies. I know it sounds cliche, but literally the reason I fought is dudes like that fight and I love breaking dudes and watching them go from a bully to a child and be like, ‘Now, how does it feel?’
“And honestly, I want to break him. I want to break him and show the world him break and I want to beat him and I want to be the one because I think I’m the only one who can carry what he’s done and not like he’s carried it but in a better way.”
