During an appearance on the Ariel Helwani MMA Show, Matt Riddle discussed his character in WWE: 

“I’m Matt Riddle, I don’t think that’s going to change and I don’t want to change,” Riddle said. “My employers don’t want me to change, they really like who am and what I bring to the table. For the writers and everybody else I think I’m a breath of fresh air, its hard when you got people coming in to tell them what to do but for me, I know what I’m going to do. You can guide me and stuff but I know who Matt Riddle is, I don’t have to think about my character. I am Matt Riddle, I’m the original bro.” 

“Still wrestling barefoot,” Riddle said. “Before all of this I had a meeting with Vince months ago before Mania, and I went to his headquarters with a full suit and flip flops and he saw that and he saw that that’s my thing. I haven’t worn shoes in years. I don’t think anybody wants to change me. I think they know what they’ve got and I bring something unique and original.”
