Backstage Update on Court Case Between Matt Riddle and Candy Cartwright

As part of the #SpeakingOut movement back in the summer, Candy Cartwright came forward and talked about her issues with WWE star Riddle.

This was then something that was investigated by WWE before the former UFC star was allowed back onto WWE TV.

Cartwright wasn’t happy with the outcome of WWE’s internal investigation and back in October, she revealed that she had filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against WWE and EVOLVE.

Riddle has denied all of the accusations so far, but according to a report by Heel By Nature, WWE obtained signatures from Matt Riddle, Gabe Sapolsky, and WWN owner Salem Hamaoui on November 17th which was what was needed to move this case over to the federal court.

Cartwright who’s real name is Samantha Tavel, is suing each of the defendants for $10 million which is for damages from emotional distress, punitive damages, attorney’s fees, and costs.

It is also included in the lawsuit that Cartwright was allegedly booked for shows with WWE and EVOLVE in January 2020 and that if she didn’t perform sexual acts on Riddle, then she wouldn’t be booked on these shows.

She also states that it was down to Riddle that WWE opted to no longer book her.
