• Backstage News On What Brock Lesnar Told Matt Riddle At Royal Rumble 2020
As we noted before, ProWrestlingSheet reported that WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and NXT wrestler Matt Riddle were involved in a backstage confrontation at Royal Rumble 2020 pay-per-view:
“Details are scarce at this time, but sources tell us Lesnar and Riddle passed each other while walking backstage and a tense encounter ensued.
One source says Brock saw Matt and wanted him to know the reality of the situation between them.”
Fightful then noted that Lesnar just wanted to tell Riddle that “he’s not the one to f**k with”:
“One person noted that Lesnar was the ‘wrong one to f**k with,’ and that Lesnar simply communicated his issues, saying ‘he was spoken to by Brock and he understood’.”
For those who don’t know, Riddle has said in multiple interviews that he wants to retire Lesnar.
In an update to this, Talk Sport revealed what Lesnar said to Riddle backstage at Royal Rumble 2020:
“According to a WWE official, Lesnar is said to have approached Riddle backstage and grabbed his shoulder to get his attention.
Then, Lesnar said: ‘Kid, you might as well stop saying my name and tagging me in sh*t because you and I will never work together. Ever.'”
