WWE’s Matt Riddle Accused Of Sexual Harassment By Candy Cartwright

Candy stated that Matt Riddle assaulted her in a van when she denied a sexual advance from him. She then had to perform oral sex to avoid having intercourse with him and described the entire thing as an “incredibly humiliating” incident for her. The IWC was shocked by the revelation at a point when the former NXT star was standing at a point to kick-off his journey to the big league.

The full statement from Candy Cartwright regarding the Matt Riddle incident from 2018 through her Twitter account is as follows,


“I’m posting this because I have been so sad for so long. I didn’t realize that what he did to me was not ok. I realize now, reading these other brave women’s stories, that I can’t be afraid anymore and I have to #speakout Back in May of 2018 I was riding with Matt Riddle and a few other wrestlers.


During the van ride, when the 3 other wrestlers had fallen asleep, Matt asked me to ‘hop on his d*ck’. When I refused (although we had previously been together I was incredibly uncomfortable in that setting) When I said no, he grabbed me by my throat, choked me and said ‘what if I just made you?’ I ended up giving him oral sex (praying someone wouldn’t wake up) to get out of having intercourse with him.


It was incredibly humiliating. It is never ok to put your hands on a woman, it’s also not ok to not listen when she says no.”



WWE then issued the following statement in regards to allegations made against the now SmackDown Superstar Matt Riddle,


“We take any allegation of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter.”


This is the same statement the company released in response to sexual allegations that were made against WWE NXT UK Superstar Jordan Devlin.


There’s more to the story as Matt Riddle and his wife also spoke up about the issue claiming that WWN wrestler Candy Cartwright has been trying to harass him for the past couple of years. He tried to sort things out in private and didn’t want to ruin her career. But Candy apparently got stuck into this matter so bad that Matt even had to change his number twice.

A fan messaged Matt Riddle on Twitter, and he denied the allegations against him. He also informed that he and WWE are working to file a defamation lawsuit against Candy Cartwright. The conversation between the fan and Riddle is as follows,



“The fact that you think I’d do something like this makes me sad bro, you don’t need to be my fan/friend but try not to believe every story you hear especially with no proof. Have a great day.”



“Why the f*ck would they lie?”



“Why does anybody lie? She has been harassing me for years I’ve had to change my number 3 times and I almost got a restraining order against her but didn’t wanna ruin her career. My lawyer and WWE are already in motion to press charges for defamation and cyber stalking / bullying. But believe who you want bro why listen to logic or facts.”




While responding to another fan, Matt Riddle’s wife has also denied any such incident,


“Yeah that is NOT true. She is seriously a psycho obsessed person. So much to the point where we almost got a restraining order against her last year and Matt had to change his number twice.”
