• NXT Star Says He Wants To Retire Brock Lesnar At WrestleMania
During a recent appearance on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, former UFC fighter & current NXT wrestler Matt Riddle noted that he wants to retire Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania:
“In my perfect world I’m Champion in like 3 months and then I’m on the main roster and I’m challenging Brock Lesnar. And I want to retire Brock Lesnar. That’s the perfect world.
Maybe Brock Lesnar, main event WrestleMania for the Universal Title, and if he loses he retires.
Maybe not this year’s Mania but next year’s Mania.”
