Matt Riddle: Shane McMahon Thanked Me For Not Punching Goldberg At WWE SummerSlam 2019

Matt Riddle and Goldberg have never seen eye-to-eye, but the two came face-to-face backstage at WWE SummerSlam 2019.

Riddle had previously commented on Goldberg's match against The Undertaker, calling him "the worst wrestler in the business." Goldberg didn't take too kindly to those words and confronted Riddle at SummerSlam, saying they would need to have a talk and that they are not bros.

Appearing on The Bump, Riddle was asked about his current relationship status with Not A Bro Billy.

"I think we still have differing opinions. It's two different mindsets when you get into this business. Even when it came to Mixed Martial Arts, I like to grind. I'm a hard worker and known for my conditioning. I like to push a pace and expect a lot from myself and my peers. Me and Goldberg, in that sense, just didn't see eye-to-eye and I think we have a different opinion on work. It was an opinion, he doesn't want to be my bro, I completely understand. I didn't really want to be his bro. That's just how the cookie crumbled," he said.

After watching the footage of their confrontation at SummerSlam, Riddle also revealed that Shane McMahon was nearby and he seemed worried a scuffle was about to happen.

"Shane McMahon was watching from down the hall like, 'Oh no, these guys are gonna fight.' And after, Shane was like, 'Thanks for not swinging on Goldberg.' Could you imagine? Matt Riddle punches Goldberg unconscious in the back. I can't do that. That is not a stallion move. You get a match set-up and beat him in front of millions. That's a Stallion move."

Riddle and Goldberg didn't scrap backstage that night and it is unknown if they'll ever scrap in the ring.

Riddle is set to face Timothy Thatcher in a cage fight on Wednesday's NXT with Kurt Angle serving as the special guest referee.

Fightful will have live coverage of NXT beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
