It’s no big secret that Matt Riddle and Goldberg don’t exactly get along. Riddle has been very critical of the WWE Hall of Famer, and he’s taken several shots at Goldberg on social media and beyond.
Goldberg recently spoke with Eyes on the Game’s Helen Lee, and when he was asked about Matt Riddle he made it clear that he doesn’t have a very high opinion of the NXT star.
“Matt who? I don’t even know who that is. I don’t answer questions about people who haven’t made it yet. Riddle has a long way to go.”
Last month Riddle and Goldberg had a tense interaction backstage at SummerSlam, and Riddle talked about what happened on WWE Watch Along.
“I’m walking by, and I see his locker room. I’m trying to get a peek, and I’m looking, I’m looking. All of a sudden , big shoulder, 300 pounds at least. I look up; it’s Bill Goldberg. He goes, ‘we got some talking to do.’ ‘We can talk anytime.’ ‘Yeah?’ ‘Yeah. Alright, bro, we can talk anytime.’ He’s like, ‘I’m not your bro.’ I’m like, ‘Alright bro, take it easy, whatever.’ He’s like, ‘We’ll see, I’ll see you later. It was a pleasure meeting you.’ ‘The pleasure was all mine, bro.’ Then he goes, ‘I’m not your bro.’ Then I walked away.”
Fightful recently reported that Matt Riddle and Goldberg had another conversation following SummerSlam, and they decided to “agree to disagree.”
According to the report, Goldberg was said to have had a chip on his shoulder, but several others were stunned by how much Matt Riddle “got it ” in regards to building a potential match.
