Fightful has verified the terms of the contract in which were recently reported in regards to Matt Riddle. From the information we gained, Riddle was made an initial offer and didn't seem too interested in renewing. However, after the new terms were brought forward, WWE were hopeful that he'd sign before the calendar rolled over, and according to sources within WWE, that happened last week. Prior to the re-signing, his contract was set to expire in August after his initial contract that he signed in 2018.
