MLW made headlines when it secured the free agent services of Matt Riddle. The King of Bros will be back in action against Jacob Fatu at Kings of Colosseum on January 6 in Philadelphia, PA. Riddle stopped by a little early to speak about his return.

Riddle delivered a quick promo during the MLW Holiday Rush special.

Riddle: What’s up, everybody? This is the King of Bros, Matthew Riddle. And I’m looking fresh, because I am in Las Vegas, Nevada for business.

I’m excited to get to MLW, because the one thing that has eluded me since 2018 was the MLW World Championship. And I think on my road back to gold, there’s one person that just stands out. And that man is the baddest man on the planet, bro. So, this new year, I’ll be seeing you soon, Fatu.

Riddle previously wrestled in MLW during 2017 and 2018. He competed in a tournament to crown the MLW world heavyweight champion. Riddle took down Jeff Cobb and ACH en route to the final, where he met defeat at the hands of Shane “Swerve” Strickland.

MLW is already prepared for the the King of Bros with a new t-shirt for Riddle.

The MLW Kings of Colosseum PPV will be available for viewing through the TrillerTV+ package, formerly FiteTV.
