Further Details On Matt Riddle’s Reported Suspension Revealed


A recent report by Bodyslam.net claimed that Matt Riddle had violated WWE’s wellness policy, thus getting suspended by the company and checking into mandatory rehab for a 30-day period. Therefore, the Original Bro had been written off TV for a period of six weeks after he suffered a brutal assault at the hands of Solo Sikoa.

On a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez shared their thoughts on the developments, noting that something about the situation didn’t add up.


“If that story is accurate, there are a lot of questions on that one,” Meltzer said. “The claim is it’s his second failure, but he was never suspended for his first failure and they’re supposed to announce every failure on the main roster and they haven’t announced either failure.”

Bryan Alvarez further highlighted the inconsistencies in the punishment for wellness policy violations.

“Sometimes people allegedly get popped and don’t get suspended,” Alvarez said. “Sometimes, they get popped and they do get suspended. Sometimes they get popped and they don’t get suspended, they just get fired… There was one person this year that I believe was popped for something, I don’t want to be too, too specific about this, but they were fired and it was not a situation where this was something egregious or there was something that was, was drastically affecting their, their immediate well-being… They got popped for something that a ton of people are doing and somehow not getting popped for, and they were immediately fired.”
