Brock Lesnar Matt Riddle Backstage Confrontation WWE Royal Rumble 2020

Brock Lesnar isn’t a fan of Matt Riddle. Backstage at Royal Rumble 2020, Lesnar confronted Riddle regarding talking about wanting to retire him in interviews, and made it clear that he’ll never work with him.

Despite never wanting to work with Riddle, Lesnar had to spend a few seconds with him in the ring.

During the 2022 Men’s Royal Rumble match, Riddle jumped on Lesnar, which resulted in Lesnar quickly throwing Riddle out of the ring.

In the Elimination Chamber 2022 match for the WWE Championship, Lesnar did a face-off with everyone before entering his pod, except Riddle. When Lesnar and Riddle went at it during the match, Lesnar went for the F5 straight away and pinned Riddle.

During a virtual signing with Signed By Superstars, Riddle revealed what happened between him and Brock backstage at Royal Rumble 2020:

“First time I met him, I had talked a lot of trash, so I kind of had it coming. I thought it was all in good spirit and good fun, plus I was on the indies, never thought I’d even get signed.

So I’m at Royal Rumble, my first time on the main roster, I’m super stoked, and I see Brock Lesnar, and he walks next to me. And I’m like, ‘What’s up, dude?’

Then all of a sudden, his security guard, who I’m good friends with now, came up behind us and he goes, ‘You need help with this?’ And I’m like, ‘What?’

And then Brock grabs me by the neck, and he didn’t like ragdoll me, but he grabbed me by the neck, then proceeded to tell me we would never work together and keep my f**king mouth shut.”
