Matt Riddle has earned a reputation for being outspoken, and he’s had no problem calling out big stars like Goldberg and Brock Lesnar on social media.
Following the Royal Rumble pay-per-view it was reported that Riddle got into a verbal altercation with Brock Lesnar backstage, and it’s also been rumored that Riddle has backstage heat with Vince McMahon.
Justin LaBar of Wrestling Inc. asked Triple H about Riddle’s status with Vince McMahon during the NXT TakeOver: Portland conference call, and he noted that Vince didn’t express his disapproval of anything that was said.
“To be honest with you, I haven’t asked anybody about it. Vince didn’t express his disapproval of anything that was said, and I’m sure if there were an issue, he would’ve called me directly. He’s not shy about that. I didn’t see that. I heard what you heard about the conversation between the two. Matt’s Matt. Brock’s Brock. They had a conversation that’s between them. They’re men. I don’t mean that to be disparaging of anybody. They’re grown adults let’s just say that. They had a conversation.”
“To be honest, I read something [and I go], ‘I don’t know if that’s a work, that’s legit. I don’t know.’ I don’t care either way from that standpoint,” Triple H said. “I’m entertained by it. If somebody has a problem with it, they come to me, and I’ll help deal with the problem. Right now, it is what it is.
