Matt Riddle Reflects On His Backstage Incident With Brock Lesnar At WWE Royal Rumble 2020



During a recent “Signed by Superstars” virtual signing, former WWE Superstar Matt Riddle discussed his backstage incident with Brock Lesnar that took place at the 2020 Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.

Riddle, who had labeled himself as the chosen one to retire Lesnar, was humbled by The Beast Incarnate.

You can check out some highlights from Riddle below:

On his backstage incident with Brock Lesnar: “First time I met him, I had talked a lot of trash, so I kind of had it coming. I thought it was all in good spirit and good fun, plus I was on the indies, never thought I’d even get signed. So I’m at Royal Rumble, my first time on the main roster, I’m super stoked, and I see Brock Lesnar, and he walks next to me. And I’m like, ‘What’s up dude?’ Then all of a sudden, his security guard, who I’m good friends with now, came up behind us and he goes, ‘You need help with this?’ And I’m like, ‘What?’ And then Brock grabs me by the neck, and he didn’t like ragdoll me, but he grabbed me by the neck, then proceeded to tell me we would never work together and keep my f’ing mouth shut.”

On Lesnar not wanting to be bothered by people: “I’m not going to say we’re friends or we’re close by any means, but I think he gets it a little bit more, he understands and at the end of the day, he’s Brock Lesnar, dude.”

Riddle eventually competed against Lesnar in the Men’s Elimination Chamber Match at the 2022 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view event. He was eliminated by The Beast during the bout.
