Perhaps calling Matt Riddle’s comments towards Bill Goldberg a reflection he has a beef with the WWE Hall of Famer and former Universal Champion is unfair. But, if you look at his comments and follow up to people curious about them, Riddle it’s easy to tell, Riddle isn’t a Goldberg fan.
Leading up to Friday’s WWE Super ShowDown event, Matt Riddle was pretty relentless on his assessment of Goldberg both before and after he made big bucks for his appearance at Super ShowDown. Riddle took shots at Goldberg, specifically saying in one tweet he was looking forward to watching his “wrestling” match at Super ShowDown. The insinuation, of course, was that Goldberg is not technically sound as an in-ring performer.
While it might have been a tad harsh, anyone who watched Goldberg’s match with The Undertaker on Friday has to admit, Riddle was probably correct.
Some contend Riddle had been targeting Goldberg because he’d been blocked by former champion on social media. Riddle says that’s not the case.
When fans were curious as to why Riddle was taking aim at Goldberg, he simply said:
“I love Pro Wrestling so much and that’s why I get mad at certain people because they’re unsafe, dangerous and a liability to everyone else, I’ve worked hard to get where I am and this is only the beginning! P.S. Undertaker is a stallion and is a true legend.”
Riddle Wasn’t Done Either
On Saturday, when some fans stood up for Goldberg having learned he had knocked himself out in the match with The Undertaker but tried to continue on anyway, Riddle didn’t seem to care.
He tweeted, “Also, when did being honest become a bad thing? And, why can’t mean people spell properly?”
The tweet suggested Riddle was being taken to task for his comments or not feeling sympathy. And, in that respect, Riddle didn’t seem to care all that much for the excuses that surrounded a main event that was less-than-stellar.
