WWE NXT star Matt Riddle is known for his callouts of top stars on the WWE main roster. In the past, Riddle would take to social media where he has issued challenges to various stars such as Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, and more.
Riddle spoke with talkSPORT at the Download Festival on Saturday where he talked about how the reaction has been from WWE officials.
This is where Riddle recalled telling officials before he signed with the company and was placed in their developmental system, NXT, that this is his personality as he will tell people what is on his mind.
“Just like with the Goldberg stuff – I’m me. I let them know before I signed, because I had opportunities to go work other places and we were discussing and my thing was, I didn’t want to let them down. I’m going to tell you who I am, I’m very honest and even with [Matt] Bloom, we’ve gotten into it where I’m like ‘hey man, I think you’re disrespecting me’ and he’s like ‘what!’ and we get into it but then we’re better afterwards because I don’t hold anything back.
I’m very honest. I’ll talk, and I’ll talk some sh*t, I’ll say some stuff. But, at the same time, it’s usually true, I back it up and I think they [WWE] respect that. I think if I was a bad worker and then I did everything that I do, they’d be like ‘hate this guy’. But, all the talents like Triple H and Shawn Michaels, they know I’m legit as hell and they love it. Same thing with [William] Regal and [Robbie] Brookside or anybody else, they all know.”
