• Matt Riddle Reacts To RAW Underground
Shane McMahon introduced the concept of RAW Underground on this week’s RAW, which will feature worked shoot fights between WWE wrestlers (both main roster & developmental talent).
SmackDown wrestler Matt Riddle, who’s a former UFC fighter, had the following to say about this concept:
“So, pretty excited watching Monday Night RAW, and Shane O’Mac, Shane McMahon, the guy with the magic hands, starts this thing called ‘the underground’. And funny enough, it looks a lot like ‘Matt Riddle’s bloodsport’ from a couple years ago. Hmmm…good thinking bro.”
