• Booker T Reacts To Matt Riddle Disrespecting Chris Jericho

As we noted before, NXT wrestler Matt Riddle threatened to beat up Chris Jericho after Jericho advised him about not disrespecting old wrestlers (tap here to know more).

Riddle then posted a video where he talked about his dislike for WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg and threatened to beat up Jericho again.

Below is what Riddle said about Goldberg:

“I’ll just say this. I don’t know what’s going on with all these WCW guys, legitimately. I don’t like Goldberg, you know my thing. I’m not getting into it, everybody knows my thing.

It’s true that he’s not on the level and yes, he’s made lots of money, but at the end of the day, when someone wants to get into this business or a passionate fan wants to watch something good I doubt they’re gonna pull up a Goldberg match.

You’re gonna pull one of my matches, or Kurt Angle’s matches, or Chris Benoit’s matches, or Shawn Michaels’ or Bret Hart’s and I’ll go on. Goldberg’s not in that category.”

Riddle then said the following about Jericho:

“I’ll beat the sh*t out of you. I don’t understand it, I don’t get it. You’re soft as hell — maybe back in your prime, but even then I would have beat the sh*t out of you. So listen and learn from me, bro. Shut your mouth.”

Jericho had the following hilarious response for Riddle’s comments:

During a recent edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T had the following to say about Riddle disrespecting Jericho:

“I don’t know how should I take it. I know if I was a young guy in the business and someone like Chris Jericho gave me a little bit of advice – be that as it may where the guy is working right now – but if Chris Jericho was to give me some words of advice, he might be one of the guys to listen to just because of the career that he’s had.

When The Rock said ‘Know your role and shut your mouth’ you know that’s true: know your role and shut your mouth.

When guys back in the day didn’t know their role they didn’t last very long in the business.”
