Matt Riddle Confirms Backstage Heat After Roman Reigns Comments


Matt Riddle has spoken about the reported backstage heat he received for comments about Roman Reigns.

Last month, Riddle had said in an interview that he could beat up Reigns in a real fight and Reigns wasn’t a needle-mover.

While speaking with the International Business Times about the situation, he said:

“I’ll comment on that briefly. I’m not trying to rub anybody the wrong way or say anything (wrong), but I made some comments (and) I’ll say this: I think they were all factual, just so you know. Kind of like I said, (I am) kind of telling the truth here.

But I think, maybe, even if they were factual, they weren’t the most professional things to say, especially with me being on the Raw brand and him being on SmackDown.

I’m not even in that realm of competing with the Tribal Chief. He’s on another level at this moment. I think maybe I got a little too big for my britches, you know what I mean?

Maybe I got a little backstage heat. Maybe a tiny bit. Unfortunately, I said some things that some people may not have liked and I’m not going to mention names, but they didn’t like it. I won’t say it again. I get it.

Right now, all hail the Tribal Chief. Good for Roman. Acknowledge him. Everybody, acknowledge him, okay? That’s all I’m saying.”
