Don't ask Randy Orton to write your apologies.
Following WWE SummerSlam, Riddle called out Reigns after Reigns called himself "legitimate needle moving" due to the success of SummerSlam.
Riddle later confirmed that he got a little heat for his comments.
Speaking to Mark Andrews on My Love Letter to Wrestling, Riddle revealed that he actually reached out to Randy Orton for help with the apology.
"One thing I have learned is don't ask Randy to write an apology for you. The other day, I said some things about a gentleman that I work with. He's on a different brand, he's a champion, he's a chief, one might say. I said some things he didn't like. I told Randy, 'I said some things, I'm pretty sure he's not happy about it. What should I say? I should make this better.' I sent Randy an apology that I wrote for this person. Randy looked at it and was like, 'Nah, this is all wrong, this is what you write.' He sent me an apology back and there was no apology at all. It was basically like, 'My bad.' He knows this Chief better than I do. So I sent this apology and let's just say that he did not accept it. I was like, 'Damnit Randy. I can never ask you to apologize for anything.' I've learned, don't ask Randy to do an apology for you," he said.
While Orton might not be good at writing apologies, Orton and Riddle have found chemistry on-screen and created a bond off-screen as well.
"When it comes to sports entertainment, the guy gets it. I've learned a tremendous amount from him. Just timing. It's just awesome hanging out with Randy. If I'm honest, the guy is just really cool. He makes me laugh, I try to make him laugh. We have a lot of fun. Even though we're so different on screen, me and Randy are quite alike in real life. We have a lot in common and get along a lot. It's made the transition as a team so much easier," he said.
Orton & Riddle have been a team for nearly a year and are former Raw Tag Team Champions.
Riddle is set to compete for the WWE Championship in the Elimination Chamber match at WWE Elimination Chamber. You can learn more by clicking here.
