Matt Riddle Reveals What Brock Lesnar Said To The WWE Locker Room Backstage At Royal Rumble 2022

Brock Lesnar Matt Riddle Backstage Confrontation WWE Royal Rumble 2020

During a virtual signing session with Signed By Superstars, former WWE Superstar Matt Riddle claimed that he was originally scheduled to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2022 match.

He also went on to claim that Brock Lesnar (the eventual winner of the match) changed the plans.

In an update, Riddle appeared on The Kurt Angle Show and clarified his comments.

Here’s what the former RAW Tag Team Champion said:

“I wouldn’t say if it wasn’t for Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar doesn’t write the script.

Anybody that’s been in the back knows people can be very influential and I’m not gonna say I was guaranteed to win because anybody that’s wrestled in WWE, nothing’s guaranteed.

I had the United States Title that I was supposed to keep. I lost it. Me and Randy (Orton) were supposed to turn on each other. We didn’t. A lot of things are told to you and don’t happen and other things happen.

But yes, at one point, I was told it was a possibility that I would win the Rumble and that I was gonna do a triangle to Brock and this and that.

And when Brock came in the back, and Brock is Brock. I have no hard feelings. He just did the job to Bobby (Lashley).

He goes, ‘Hey, you guys got to do business for me. I did this good business for Bobby and you do good business for me’, and we’re like, ‘all right’.

What are you gonna do, you know, and everybody was like, ‘Okay’, and that’s what we did.”
