Riddle hasn't quite given up on a potential bout with Goldberg.
Riddle has been calling out Goldberg for years, but a match between the two doesn't appear any closer to happening with Riddle on the main roster and featured weekly on Raw than it did when he was still in NXT as Goldberg continues to ignore him.
Still hoping to make something happen, Riddle was once again asked about Goldberg in an interview with BT Sport.
"The only way I can get Goldberg in a ring with me is if it was like, he just gets to murder me and I have to let him do it. I have to let him do it because he couldn't do it in real life. He would agree to get in the ring with me if I just promised to let him beat me up. If we could work it out any other way. My goal, I would love to have a sweet match with him. I think I'm good enough where I can do it and redeem him completely. I don't have to win. I'm not that guy. I'm all about the quality of the work. If he'd be willing to listen to what I have to say, I'll listen to what he has to say. I will. It could be magical. The fans would eat it up. The guy really doesn't like me and I really don't like his work. From 'Universal Soldier 3' and beyond. Not a fan. He has a presence, just like I have a presence. He said, 'Serious, I can't be touched.' I'm the actual, 'Serious, go ahead and touch me, see what happens.' I think it makes for a great match and entertainment. I don't think it'll ever happen. He literally refused to acknowledge me on multiple occasions. I don't blame him. The guy is like, 'what if he shoots on me?' I would be scared too, bro. Enjoy your time. He has a couple more matches. If he wants to come play, I'm here. I'll be here for the next ten years, if I'm lucky. Definitely five," he said.
Goldberg is still under contract with WWE for two more years, with two matches per-year on his deal. He hasn't wrestled since WrestleMania 36 when he lost the WWE Universal Championship to Braun Strowman.
