Matt Riddle Takes a Shot at WWE Hall of Famer Booker T

WWE Raw Superstar Matt Riddle has been very vocal about his dislike for some wrestlers.

Last year, he made several headlines after criticizing the former Universal Champion Goldberg and there were talks of the two having a one-on-one contest in the ring.

Now, The King of Bros has taken shots at Booker T following a Survivor Series qualifying match loss at the hands of Sheamus.

Riddle posted a meme of himself reacting to Booker T’s commentary, mocking the Hall of Famer.

A few days ago, Booker T had made a comment on why Matt Riddle may not be a success in WWE. Booker said that, to compete and win world titles, Superstars need to have a “certain look” which Riddle may not have if he wrestles barefoot.

“Not taking anything away from Matt Riddle, that (not wearing boots) was the first thing I noticed about him. I know flipping them off was cool and how WWE captured it in slow motion. That’s fine but I think about so much when it goes into being the wrestling heavyweight champion. Let’s think about it for one second. There’s a protocol there. How many world heavyweight champions have we had that were bare feet? How many bare feet wrestlers were greater than Superfly Jimmy Snuka? If you’re trying to get to the heavyweight championship or the Universal championship, there has always been a certain look that you have to have.”

This isn’t the first time Matt Riddle has taken a jab at other wrestlers. He has also criticized wrestlers such as Goldberg and Brock Lesnar heavily.

Matt Riddle vs Sheamus ended when the latter landed a Brogue Kick to The Original Bro. It was probably the best match of the night and Sheamus deserved this victory. It’ll be interesting to see what WWE has in store for Riddle in the future.
