Matt Riddle Loves Pro Wrestling More Than MMA, Labels Last Fight As “Terrible”



Matt Riddle had an eventful MMA run with an 8-3 record before making the switch to pro wrestling in 2014.

Despite competing in the ring for only 5 years, Riddle has rapidly risen through the ranks, cementing himself as one of the most promising talents in the pro wrestling industry today.

The King Of Bros has been a hot act ever since his NXT debut last year – he has gotten over with fans pretty well and his charismatic, daunting babyface character easily stands out from the bunch, thus giving WWE yet another reason to push him as one of the top Superstars on the yellow-and-black brand.

On Chasing Glory podcast, Riddle talked about his love for pro wrestling by pointing out the bitter taste in his mouth for MMA.

“I like talking trash too, like, I think it’s fun, but I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. You know, it’s like I love pro wrestling. I get to fight people all the time, but I’m not trying to hurt or end people’s careers, but in MMA just by default you fight somebody and you hurt them and then they get fired or they get lesser money or whatever. A loss counts big in MMA.”

The OG Bro didn’t hesitate to label his final MMA victory as “terrible”. Riddle wasn’t able to fight his last bout due to injury and hasn’t stepped inside the cage ever since.

Riddle will challenge Adam Cole for the NXT Championship in singles action this Wednesday night on the USA Network.

Cole suffered an injury last week and could potentially drop the title to Riddle in case his condition turns out to be worse than initially expected and WWE plans to write him off for an indefinite period.
