Riddle probably won’t be challenging Roman Reigns at Money in The Bank.
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Roman Reigns is still not scheduled for this Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event, but the Usos might defend their tag titles on the show. After facing off against Riddle and Shinsuke Nakamura this past week on RAW, fans wondered whether that meant a tag team championship match would be included on the show. Now, it appears that might be the case. Meltzer said,
“WWE, obviously, SmackDown on Friday is the go-home for this unbelievable pay-per-view show. As of mid-week, early week, or whatever… Early week. The Uso’s match with Nakamura and Riddle was not scheduled for Sunday’s pay-per-view. Now, it could be on Sunday’s pay-per-view.”
Meltzer added that the reported plan of Reigns vs. Riddle looks to be off as well. So far, there are no confirmed challengers for Reigns. Reigns has been rumored to take some time off this Summer, but with SummerSlam right around the corner, that would leave his next challenger open-ended. Reigns is featured prominently on both the SummerSlam and Clash at the Castle posters, so at least that’s something.
Although it looks as if Riddle may not challenge Roman Reigns at Money in the Bank, Meltzer did note that things could change, and Riddle could still be next in line if WWE wanted to go that route.
“But, the plan was for it to be… They are doing the match. The plan was to do it in Vegas, which, of course, as you recall, the plan for Vegas was Roman Reigns against Riddle. Now, Roman Reigns is not necessarily off that show, but Roman Reigns and Riddle is probably off the show, but they can always change their minds. They can change everything tomorrow,” said Meltzer.
