Matt Riddle – ‘I Told Vince McMahon I’m A Goof That Can Kick Your Ass’


In a recent appearance on the “Sunday Night’s Main Event” podcast, former WWE Superstar Matt Riddle recalled his initial interaction with Vince McMahon in WWE.

McMahon considered Riddle “goofy” before Bruce Prichard vouched him for his wrestling skills.

Riddle said, “He thought I was goofy. If anything, the first time we met, he didn’t like me because I was goofy. He was like ‘You’re goofy.’ And I’m like ‘Yeah I’m goofy, but it’s a good thing.’ He’s like ‘Being a goof isn’t a good thing.’ And I’m like ‘Well, I’m a goof that can kick your ass.’ You could tell that didn’t make him happy. And then Bruce Prichard hopped in and was like ‘Hey Vince, he’s pretty good at wrestling. Trust me.’”

Last month, Vince McMahon resigned from his position at TKO Group after a lawsuit from former WWE employee Janel Grant accused him of sex trafficking, sexual assault, and more.
