Matt Riddle spoke with Sports Illustrated about the rumors that he could be heading to WWE or NJPW in the near future as he sorts out his next move in the pro wrestling world. Here is what he had to say:
“I’ve been in situations like this before. “There is nothing official. I’ve talked to WWE, I’ve talked to the president of New Japan, and I am confident in where I stand in the world of professional wrestling. Being real in pro wrestling has paid off,” said Riddle. “Just being myself, that really translated to the fans. It’s not that I don’t love the indies, it’s just time to move on.
“I need more substance, I need to grow. I’m a shark and I swam in a lot of different ponds, but I’m ready for the ocean. It just depends if I’m going to the Atlantic or the Pacific.”
