Realism is important to Matt Riddle inside the ring.
Matt Riddle was recently on X-PAC 1-2-360 to discuss the latest developments in his professional wrestling career but he was also asked about his hybrid style of wrestling that takes influence from his MMA background.
"I always watched wrestling and was a fan of what I consider 'sport wresting.' That doesn't mean MMA wrestling and that doesn't mean amateur wrestling. It means competitive professional wrestling. Where you have two guys and if they're running ropes, they are running them so hard it looks like it's about to be a car accident. There's commitment in real sport wrestling," said Riddle.
When it came to watching wrestling, Riddle said he always liked those that pushed the pace because of the realism and he championed his own style as "real."
"I'll be honest, my wrestling is real. I kick, slap, and slam people and it's all real. I don't knock people out but it's real," said Riddle.
In the rest of the interview, Riddle was asked about his free agency and any possible match ups in other companies that he would like to take part. The full interview is available at the AfterBuzz TV YouTube channel or the video below.
