Top star written out of WWE NXT

It looks like one of the top stars in NXT has finished up with the brand.

On this week’s episode of NXT on the USA Network, Matt Riddle was submitted by Timothy Thatcher in a Fight Pit match with Kurt Angle as the special referee. Thatcher forced Riddle to pass out to win the match. Earlier in the match, Riddle knocked out a couple of Thatcher’s teeth. There was a brief pause during the match as trainers checked on him when they saw the blood coming out of his mouth.

Dave Meltzer first reported this week that Riddle would be moving to the SmackDown roster, headed by Bruce Prichard.

The decision to move him to SmackDown instead of Raw is interesting because Paul Heyman is a big fan of Riddle. However, Brock Lesnar might be the reason why Riddle is not on Raw. Click here for more on the story.
