• After Brock Lesnar & Goldberg, Riddle Insults Roman Reigns
RAW wrestler Riddle has been targeting Brock Lesnar and Goldberg for years.
He has insulted them publicly on multiple occasions, in hopes of securing a match against them.
However, that won’t happen. Brock Lesnar shut him down in a face-to-face encounter backstage at Royal Rumble 2020, while WWE books Goldberg with main eventers only, especially now that he’s towards the end of his current contract.
After failing to get a match against those megastars, Riddle has shifted his attention towards Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Here’s what the current RAW Tag Team Champion said about “The Tribal Chief” during a recent interview with Bleacher Report:
“No disrespect to Roman, he seems like a swell fella, but at the same time, it’s like when people say they’re a good parent, you know what? If you were a good parent, your kids would be telling you you’re a good parent.
When he’s saying ‘Acknowledge me’ or ‘I move the needle,’ no, you don’t. You’re related to The Rock. Shut up. Like, I’m not impressed, I can beat you up in a real fight. So, shut your mouth.
You’re not moving needles. I’m the real stallion, RK-Bro is moving the merch, we’re moving the needle, and that’s it. I don’t want to say too much, I’m not trying to get in trouble.
Hey, hats off to him. He’s amazing at what he does. I do like what he does, but at the same time, it’s like, get off your high horse.
You’re in that spot for a reason. You’re not a bro. You’re second generation. I’m first generation.”
This was in response to Roman Reigns recently claiming that he’s the reason SummerSlam 2021 was the most-watched SummerSlam in the history of WWE.
Legitimate needle moving. https://t.co/1Qsr6kYWb2

Also, another reason behind Riddle taking a shot at Reigns could be due to the possibility of RK-BRO facing Reigns’ cousins, SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos, in a Champions vs. Champions match at Survivor Series 2021.
