Former WWE Star Confirms Talks With TNA Wrestling

Former WWE Star Confirms Talks With TNA Wrestling WWE/TNA

Following his departure from the company, former WWE star Matt Riddle has confirmed his talks with TNA Wrestling.

Since becoming a free agent in December 2023, Matt Riddle has worked with NJPW, MLW and other independent promotions.

Despite establishing himself with Major League Wrestling, some fans have been wondering if Riddle could sign with other prominent wrestling companies.

Speaking to Jurrrattt at River City Con, Matt Riddle was asked about his future in the pro wrestling business. He answered:

“WWE return, you never know. AEW, you never know. Right now, I work a lot with New Japan and MLW.”

“I’ve been in talks with TNA. I’ve been in talks with everybody, to be honest.”

“Right now, I’m focusing on myself. I just had a child. I have a six-month year old son, plus three other kids. My twin girls are 14 and my other son is 11. I have quite the roster.”

“I’m just focusing on that because the last decade or longer, I’ve been wrestling and training.”

“I’ve been on the indies, and that’s basically what I’m doing now, but I get paid a little more, I get to do [appearances], and I get a little more time with my family,”

Riddle previously discussed the possibility of appearing at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, which you can read at this link.
