Matt Riddle has been one of the stars to watch ever since he joined NXT, and it was recently confirmed that he will be joining the main roster as a member of the SmackDown brand.

Riddle was introduced to SmackDown last week via a video package which featured an introduction from Kurt Angle, and the WWE Hall of Famer recently revealed to CBR that he turned down the chance to manage Riddle.

“I think that Matt Riddle is going to be one of the faces of the [WWE], he has all the ability. His personality is great. At first, it’s a little odd. But once you get to know him, he’s very likable. And that’s what he’s going to get from the fans. They’re going to love this kid. And he proves it in the ring. He’s phenomenal in the ring. There’s no doubt about that. But his whole bro gimmick thing works really well. And he’s going to do extremely well.”

“WWE has offered me a job to manage him. Unfortunately, I turned it down due to a few different reasons, but I would have loved to manage him. It just wasn’t the right time.”

However, Angle hasn’t completely closed the door on aligning himself with Matt Riddle, as he had the following response when asked if they will reunite in the future, “You never know [laughs].”
