We’ve been keeping you up to date on all the times Matt Riddle has gone after Goldberg, of which there are plenty. Seeing as they were both in Toronto for SummerSlam, and were even in the same arena for the show, where Riddle was campaigning for a match with him, it was at least possible they would cross paths and finally meet in person.
If we’re to believe Riddle, that’s exactly what happened.
Above is a video WWE released from “Watch Along” showcasing Riddle telling the story of how it went down:
“So, William. I’m walking by and I see his locker room. I’ve always seen Brock’s but I see Goldberg’s locker room and I’m trying to get a peek. And I’m looking, I’m looking, all of sudden, POW! Big shoulder, 300 pounds, at least. I look up, it’s Bill Goldberg. I’m like, ‘Bill Goldberg!’ He goes ‘oh, we got some talking to do.’ And I’m like ‘well, we can talk anytime, bro.’ He’s like ‘yeah?’ And I’m like ‘yeah!’ Then I was like ‘alright, bro, well anytime.’ He’s like ‘I’m not your bro.’ And then I’m like ‘alright, bro, take it easy, whatever.’ And then he’s like ‘yeah, we’ll see. I’ll see ya later. And, hey, it was a pleasure meeting you.’ I go, ‘the pleasure was all mine, bro.’ And then he goes ‘I’m not your bro.’ And then I walked away.”
We may never get a match between the two, but I, for one, would love to see it.
