Matt Riddle on how WWE reacts to him trashing Goldberg on Twitter

Matt Riddle spent Super ShowDown trashing Goldberg on Twitter and hasn’t done much to let off the gas since then. He feels how it feels, he’s going to be open and honest about it, and that’s just the way it’s going to be.

When asked by talkSPORT if WWE has a problem with that, he had this to say:

“Just like with the Goldberg stuff – I’m me. I let them know before I signed, because I had opportunities to go work other places and we were discussing and my thing was, I didn’t want to let them down. I’m going to tell you who I am, I’m very honest and even with [Matt] Bloom, we’ve gotten into it where I’m like ‘hey man, I think you’re disrespecting me’ and he’s like ‘what!’ and we get into it but then we’re better afterwards because I don’t hold anything back. I’m very honest. I’ll talk, and I’ll talk some sh*t, I’ll say some stuff. But, at the same time, it’s usually true, I back it up and I think they [WWE] respect that. I think if I was a bad worker and then I did everything that I do, they’d be like ‘hate this guy’. But, all the talents like Triple H and Shawn Michaels, they know I’m legit as hell and they love it. Same thing with [William] Regal and [Robbie] Brookside or anybody else, they all know.”

For what it’s worth, he’s deleted tweets in the past, so it’s not like he’s entirely unfiltered. He’s also still in NXT and doesn’t have the same exposure as a main roster wrestler, and his trashing Goldberg almost certainly won’t lead to a match. So perhaps things will change the higher up he goes.

For now, we can continue to look forward to the “Bro” staying full “Bro” at all times.
