• Matt Riddle Reacts To Seth Rollins Saying He Sucks
During a recent edition of The Bump, Universal Champion Seth Rollins was asked to pick sides for the NXT Championship match between Adam Cole and Matt Riddle (which took place on the October 2nd edition of NXT).
Rollins took Cole’s side and said Riddle sucks.
During a recent interview on the Battleground podcast, Riddle was asked to comment on this and below is what Riddle said:
“I think [Rollins] wants attention, but that’s cool bro. He went after Sasha [Banks] and deleted his Twitter account. I don’t really mind. My fans are really nice so they’re not going to go out and threaten him.
I think he’s friends with Cole and I think that was mostly it. It’s funny because he’s said he wanted a match with me before. He said all that and I was like, ‘All right, nevermind’. I guess I’m not that cool.”
