The match was made more special with Kurt Angle being the special guest referee. Angle couldn’t help but be impressed by this new breed of talent throughout the match.
The structure seemed to be a homage to Owen Hart as it looked similar to the Tiger Pit used for his match against Ken Shamrock at SummerSlam 1998.
The Original Bro and Thatcher didn’t pull any punches and showed their brutality. Matt bloodied Timothy with a stiff shot which resulted in a great visual. However, it cost Thatcher two of his teeth. Riddle even got to use the Floating Bro to tease an end to the match.
However, it was Timothy who used the rear-naked choke for the win as Riddle passed out.
Riddle boasts of an impressive record
Riddle posted an 8-3 (2) record as a professional MMA fighter, emerging as a promising welterweight in UFC before being released by the promotion in 2013 for two positive tests for marijuana.
He began his pro wrestling career in 2014, working on the independent circuit before signing with WWE in 2018.
WWE has signed several former MMA fighters in recent hears, including Ronda Rousey, Shayna Baszler and Riddle. That’s without mentioning Brock Lesnar, who has made the leap back and forth between UFC and WWE to great success.
