Following his appearance during the WWE Draft, a Hall of Famer has spoken about the star who reminds him of “a male stripper”.
On April 28, the WWE Draft began with John “Bradshaw” Layfield and Teddy Long naming some of the picks for the evening.
Speaking on WrestleBinge by Sportskeeda, Teddy Long spoke about being backstage at the WWE Draft and what he thought of a particular member of the roster.
Speaking to Mac Davis and Bill Apter, Long discussed his thoughts on Matt Riddle, saying:
“I was talking to The Street Profits, and Matt was sitting right there. Me and Matt talked a little bit, I love Matt Riddle. Matt Riddle kind of reminds me of male stripper.
“That’s great too because I watched him come down, boy those women eyes were glued on him, and you know he’s like half-naked as he is going down.
“He has a great body, he looks great and he looks the part. He’s the modern-day Warrior.”
Long would then go on to suggest a potential future opponent for Riddle, concluding:
“The other thing I think too, you know with Matt we just got to find the right guy for him to work with, they just haven’t found the perfect guy for him.
“To me Elias kind of does it for me. Him and Matt, I don’t know but I just see that.”
Matt Riddle remains on Raw as a result of the WWE Draft which concluded on Monday’s episode of Raw.
Before the WWE Draft, Matt Riddle had hinted at a change of character in a behind-the-scenes vlog.
