Riddle is one of many wrestlers who traveled through Pro Wrestling Guerrilla in California before making it to national television.
Riddle wrestled 19 matches in PWG, winning the PWG Tag Team Championships alongside Jeff Cobb.
Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out Of Character, Riddle discussed his PWG run.
"I wish I would have gotten a good year in BOLA, it was just never my time at PWG, but I did have the Tag Team Championships," he said. "I think I never got the singles push in PWG because I was always a champion somewhere I was so busy wrestling everywhere. I loved wrestling for PWG, but I'm going to be honest, they didn't really pay my full rate. To be fair, they're flaying guys from Japan and Australia and they have these supershows, so I get it. The experience, the exposure, and being in that building and being received at that time, I couldn't replace those moments. Without PWG, I wouldn't be here today. Even though I wasn't getting paid as much as I wish I was, it was worth weight in gold and that's why everyone that went there knew that going on in, but was still willing to destroy themselves at PWG because the crowd, exposure, experience, and everything else."
Riddle did compete in Battle of Los Angeles 2017, making it to the semi-finals where he lost to Cobb. Riddle also looked back fondly on the slow-motion spot that took place in a ten-man tag at PWG Battle of Los Angeles night three in 2016.
New PWG Tag Team Champions were crowned at PWG Threemendous IV on Sunday. You can learn more by clicking here.
