Goldberg’s Heat With Matt Riddle Could Be Real

Was blocking Riddle on Twitter the worst decision ever made by Goldberg?


Goldberg lost to The Undertaker in the main event of WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia. The Hall OF Famer was deeply upset with his performance but even angrier with Matt Riddle who led the charge on social media.

Prior to Super ShowDown, Riddle took his first shot at Goldberg after the 50-year-old legend had blocked the young NXT talent on Twitter. On the day of the event, The King Of Bros again trolled the former Universal Champion in a meme that caused a huge stir among fans.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez discussed Riddle repeatedly burying Goldberg. Riddle’s shots don’t look like a work, because if it were, then the WWE Universe could be getting teases of a dream match build already. However, all indications are that the heat between both men is real and the situation doesn’t seem like getting better whatsoever.

Matt Riddle’s just up there burying Goldberg and so in talking to people this weekend and listen, God only knows in pro wrestling, but from talking to people this weekend the indication I have is that this is real and somebody told me that Riddle has actually been saying things about Goldberg for awhile I actually don’t know another person said for whatever reason Goldberg blocked Riddle and he was really angry about it and that’s why he went on this weekend-long tirade on Goldberg.”

It’s interesting to see that instead of intervening, WWE is actually allowing Riddle to carry on with his trolling on social media. While his previous shots against Brock Lesnar have already made fans believe that WWE could be hosting a Lesnar vs. Riddle match at WrestleMania, the fact that an icon like Goldberg is getting buried for no reason doesn’t really make any sense.

“I know people who are furious at Riddle. I can’t even say the words they’re saying, but the weird thing is that things are still posted. Like if this was real then why are they allowing him to do this? It’s not coming off well.”
