Matt Riddle officially called up to SmackDown

Matt Riddle has arrived.

During this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle was shown backstage talking about the past and how he used to run the place. He doesn’t anymore because it’s time for the future. And that’s when he introduced us to the newest call up to the blue brand.


A vignette aired introducing the wider audience to the NXT standout, though he didn’t appear on the actual broadcast.

No word on when exactly we’ll get to see him on the main roster, but at least now we know he’s a member of it!
