Matt Riddle confirms desire to fight against this WWE star for the title


Matt Riddle is already thinking of gold after recently moving to SmackDown

WWE SmackDown star Matt Riddle has already made a huge splash since making his debut on the Blue Brand.

The former NXT star moved to SmackDown and got a huge win on his debut too. He defeated Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles and seems to have the Phenomenal One in his sights.

While Riddle is a former tag champion from NXT, his target is a singles title. The Original Bro retweeted a post claiming that he should face for the title.

Riddle certainly has been one of the bright spots in WWE ever since he came. He had impressed in the indie scene and his MMA background certainly gives him a different arsenal of attacks.

However, the greatest aspect of Riddle’s character is his laid-back style. That seems to have clicked well with the WWE Universe and it will be interesting to see if he does get a shot against Styles soon.

The American had spoken a while back about his possible plans for the next WrestleMania. Riddle claimed that he was keen on winning gold and initially wanted to reclaim the tag titles with Pete Dunne.

His partner has been stuck in the UK due to travel restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic. He also spoke about winning the Intercontinental title and it certainly seems like he will be in a championship run soon.

Things have been tough for Riddle in recent weeks though. He has been accused of sexual assault by Candy Cartwright, an indie wrestler. While the WWE star claimed he is looking at legal action to protect himself, the indie star recently shared a few photos of the pair.

Riddle has since come out and confirmed he had an affair with Cartwright but denied the story of sexual assault.
