The blue brand is about to become the Bro brand.
Matt Riddle was introduced by Kurt Angle as the next member of the SmackDown roster several weeks ago. Now, we know that the former NXT Tag Team Champion will make his debut on the June 19 episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
The announcement, which came in the form of another vignette, was made on June 12. While Kurt Angle did not introduce him in this vignette, Kurt Angle was recently quoted as saying he turned down an opportunity to manage the former UFC fighter, who, in turn, said there would be more money in he and Angle on opposite sides of the squared circle.
Matt Riddle's last match on television was in a losing effort to Timothy Thatcher on an episode of NXT inside of the first-ever NXT Fight Pit.
