A match many people want to see is SmackDown-newcomer and former NXT star Matt Riddle going one-on-one with former WCW icon Goldberg.
Following Goldberg’s infamous clash with The Undertaker in Saudi Arabia last year, Riddle took to Twitter to poke some fun at the former World Heavyweight Champion’s wrestling ability.
The pair apparently had a backstage altercation at SummerSlam last year, a show where Goldberg defeated Dolph Ziggler. You can read more about that story by clicking here.
Someone that Riddle has also had problems with is Brock Lesnar. The former NXT Tag Team Champion has spoken about his desire to be the man who eventually retires Brock Lesnar.
During an interview with ESPN, Riddle noted that unlike Brock Lesnar, he never actually wanted a match with Goldberg, unless it was really short. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
“I never wanted the Goldberg one, I don’t think…unless it was like a minute it might…I don’t think it’d be a great match. Brock’s really good that’s why I would love that match but Goldberg was just more..I’m just not a fan of his work. I just feel like you know he’s been pushed a lot and he’s been able to accomplish so much when I feel like there’s a lot of other people that are more deserving but that’s it.”
During the same interview, Riddle opened up about his marijuana consumption while working for WWE. You can read more about that by clicking here.
