A new match has been announced for the upcoming episode of WWE Raw.
The company has announced that Xavier Woods will face Riddle on the May 24 installment of the weekly series. This comes just one week after Woods' trombone playing distracted Randy Orton, allowing Kofi Kingston to pick up the win against The Viper. Riddle, who had been friendly with The New Day up until this point, took exception with what happened to his RKBro partner and shoved Woods to the ground.
Here is the official press release, via WWE.com:
It started with a shove.
After Xavier Woods caused the distraction that led to Kofi Kingston’s victory over Randy Orton last week, Riddle protested by shoving Woods to the canvas in the middle of the ring.
Coming fresh off the heels of failing to bring Orton and The New Day together as friends one week prior, Riddle has seemingly now set his sights on getting payback for his “friend” Orton by squaring off against Woods one-on-one this Monday.
