During a virtual signing with Signed By Superstars, Riddle revealed that he was the one who pitched the idea of using his divorce in this promo:

“Was the promo scripted between me and Seth Rollins? Not only was it scripted, I told Seth to say it. I said, ‘You know there’s already all this flak and whatever crap going on’. I was like, ‘Yeah, sure’.”
