It was just confirmed this week on WWE Friday Night SmackDown that Matt Riddle will be moving to the main roster as part of the blue brand.
The news was announced by WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle and that was followed by a video package on Riddle. Dave Meltzer broke the news earlier this week about Riddle’s move to SmackDown. The belief is that the move was done because WWE knows that Riddle has options when his contract expires sometime this summer.
As noted in a previous post, the move to SmackDown is interesting because Paul Heyman is said to be a fan of Riddle so one would think that Raw would be the most logical place for him to land. However, the reason why Riddle is being kept away from Raw may have more to do with real-life heat with Brock Lesnar. Click here for more on that story.
