If earlier reports have been any indications then Seth Rollins and Riddle were not on good terms within the WWE. Riddle is obviously one of those outspoken members of the roster who has had heats with the likes of Legends like Goldberg or Brock Lesnar. At the time, his name was involved in the #SpeakingOut trend, too when he cheated on his wife.
Then reports came around the time of the 2020 WWE Draft that there is a backstage issue between Seth Rollins and Riddle. The former Universal Champion said he had no interest in facing the former winner of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament. Sources also hinted that the beef could have started over Becky Lynch. It might not exist anymore.
Seth Rollins And Riddle Squashed The Beef?
The previously existing heat between Seth Rollins and Riddle has recently been squashed, going by the latest reports of Fightful. The source noted although they did not even look at each other during the Survivor Series pay-per-view, they were able to sort out their issues, possibly burying their hatchet.
“We spoke to numerous people who were backstage at WWE Survivor Series, who said that it seemed as if the two had squashed the issue between them.”
After Seth Rollins mentioned that he doesn’t have any interest in Riddle, he was sent to SmackDown while the vice-versa happened to Riddle. A lot of fans noticed this shakeup and thought it was interesting as WWE decided to keep them apart.
Riddle allegedly took shots towards a number of WWE Superstars including Seth Rollins. Obviously, things aren’t likely to be unheard of these days in the presence of social media. Things then went personal when a social media post by Riddle’s wife seemed to take a shot at The Messiah’s girlfriend Becky Lynch’s physique.
Matt Riddle’s wife Lisa wrote an Instagram post calling out female WWE Superstars for looking “straight skinny jiggly fat.” She used a photo of Becky Lynch in that post that must haven’t gone well with Seth Rollins. Riddle’s wife since deleted the post, but you can check out the screenshot alongside the quotes.
“calling out multiple Main Roster Divas over the past couple of weeks for being straight skinny jiggly fat (not saying they aren’t beautiful, just saying SQUAT). It’s funny because there have been multiple female wrestlers that have asked to train with me. Each one of them look great in their gear. Clearly, they know what they are doing (especially if they want to train with yours truly ).
ALL females freaking SQUAT and go HARD! I do not have many photos of my rear end in minimal clothing besides these two. Here is a comparison of me, not caring what I look like, just trying to be strong a decent Olympic Lifter, and a mom of 3 vs two females getting paid a TON of money for how they look. Rant over”
