WWE NXT star Matt Riddle has promised to retire WWE Universal Champion Brock 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.
Riddle sat down with Jeremy Borash for a taped interview that aired on this week’s episode of NXT TV on WWE’s streaming service, WWE Network. This is where he spoke about a wide range of topics including a potential match against “The Beast.”
“Retiring Brock, that’s no secret. That’s been the goal since I started wrestling since the very beginning. I like to set goals that seem impossible. Only one person can retire Brock Lesnar and end his career, and that person is going to be me.
Riddle would continue, “I don’t like how he does it, I don’t like the respect that he shows, and I don’t like the work rate that he puts out. That’s just my personal opinion. I think he’s capable of more. Maybe it doesn’t work out for him, maybe it doesn’t work out the first time, but I guarantee you, I’m going to beat him. I’m going to retire him.”
