You never know what’s going to happen when you watch the Raw after WrestleMania and last Monday night Matt Riddle returned after spending several months on the sidelines. Riddle got into it with The Miz and he once again appeared on WWE programming on SmackDown when he backed up Sami Zayn in his fight against The Bloodline.
Matt Riddle has a bit of a reputation for being goofy on screen, but it seems that he could be going through a bit of a character change in the weeks to come. In a behind the scened Raw vlog the former United States Champion talked about his goals for his comeback and he said that he wants to bring a more serious side of himself to TV.
“Before I left, I beat Seth (Rollins) in a Fight Pit Match in the main event of Extreme Rules. Instead of kinda keeping that ride on, I kinda went back into goofy Riddle mode. And I feel like this time around, it’s still me, I’m always gonna be me, but I wanna bring a more serious side to it. You know, I’ve been working out a lot, I’ve been training a lot of jiu-jitsu. I just got my black belt.”
Matt Riddle will be in action on Monday Night Raw this week when he goes one on one with The Miz. Stay tuned for updates.
