Riddle has discussed previously that he has no concerns about being buried on the main roster which many fans have been worried about, and reiterated this on the latest After The Bell podcast.
“My mind is always ‘more work to do.’ I can always improve. AJ [is similar], that’s why he’s as good as he is. After our match, we’re already talking about how we can make everything better, and even after the last match, it’s the same thing. For me, I was just really happy. The amount of trash people talk and were like, ‘why would he be called up, they’re gonna ruin him.’ I’m like, ‘you guys don’t get it.’ Nobody is going to ruin me. I wouldn’t go up if they were gonna ruin me. I don’t care about money. I’ll live on the streets. I want certain things a certain way. I’ll respect you if you respect me. People might say, ‘that’s stupid, it’s always about the money.’ No, if you become a legend, the money comes. I’m not about money, I’m about my status. I told them, ‘I’m about making you money.’ I’m never going to ask for more than I’m worth. At the same time, I know what I’m worth. I think that’s why everything has been good and will only get better.”
It looks like WWE is building towards a Riddle vs King Corbin match possibly at SummerSlam, and a match between Riddle and Shorty G on TV before that.
Do you think Riddle will suffer the same fate as so many popular NXT stars have and end up in obscurity on SmackDown? Let us know in the replies on Twitter.
