Matt Riddle has some big expectations for his WWE career. Riddle signed with WWE this past summer and is currently working in NXT. The former mixed martial artist transitioned into a professional wrestling career that saw near immediate success. After a few years working on the indies as one of the hottest stars in the business, Riddle got the call from WWE.
As a former UFC fighter, Riddle was a guest on “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show” to discuss professional wrestling and signing with WWE. Riddle was asked, in his perfect world, how long he’d be on NXT before jumping to the main roster. Riddle said he’d like to win the NXT Title in three months and then go up to the main roster to challenge and retire Brock Lesnar:
“In my perfect world I’m champion in like, three months,” Riddle said. “And then I’m on the main roster and I’m challenging Brock Lesnar. And I want to retire Brock Lesnar. That’s the perfect world. Maybe Brock Lesnar, main event WrestleMania for the Universal Title, and if he loses he retires.”
