Matt Riddle has likely been written off WWE NXT television and the belief is that he’s heading to the Smackdown brand.
Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com discussed why Riddle might be going to Smackdown instead of RAW:
“The strange thing about this is that Paul Heyman is a big fanof Matt Riddle so you’d think he’s going to RAW, but this Matt Riddle/ Lesnar deal — I mean it’s weird like I’m sure there are aspects of it who are people that are just encouraging Matt Riddle to do what Matt Riddle does, but on the other side this, if anything else should tell you that this is legit because if they were trying to work together to build something up for a match I mean Matt Riddle goes to RAW.”
“Lesnar’s not around it’s not like he can say I’m not gonna share a locker room with him. Lesnar probably won’t be around until they’re running shows with fans again.”
