Matt Riddle has caused a bit of trouble on Twitter with his criticisms of Goldberg and calling out of Brock Lesnar. But that doesn't mean there is any heat on him from those in command.
Goldberg is not Riddle's bro and Lesnar reportedly told him that he'll never work with him, but that hasn't stopped Riddle for weighing in on both Brock and Goldberg on social media. And even though it might appear as if he's pushing his luck, Riddle says things are all good at the top.
"I'll tell you this. Do I have heat with WWE or NXT, or the people that run the show? No. Do I have heat with some people who think I'm disrespectful at times because they don't understand how business works? Yes. Do people take things too seriously? Yes," Riddle told Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda. "And honestly, I've had to give talks at NXT, is not like I stopped the place, but it's like, interjecting. I'm like, Hey. I'm going to tweet or say something that offends you. Realize I'm not trying to actually offend you, I'm just trying to make people think I am. I'm putting out an image, a facade, you know? If I talk a certain amount of trash, people are like, Oh, man, that guy's uncontrollable, he does what he wants. You know what I'm saying? I'm doing the job, I'm in the business I'm in. I'm a tag champ, I was in the Rumble, so how does this guy have so much nuclear heat?"
Riddle continued, revealing a recent meeting he had with Vince McMahon, indicating that things were all copasetic between the two.
"I was in Vince McMahon's office just three weeks ago, before this thing broke out. I was in headquarters talking to him - and, yeah, we mentioned the heat I have with certain people but, at the end of the day, he signs the checks, he makes it happen for me and they're in control, not the talent. If the employer's happy and I can make them money and make them a profit, and I'm worth my weight and I'm pulling my weight, I don't see a problem. To answer your question, yes, some people I have heat with. But most of it's just high school, catty, 'He said this,' people who just can't take a joke or a work."
Riddle has continued to give his opinion on his favorite wrestler Bill Goldberg and his recent run as WWE Universal Champion. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
