• RAW Wrestler Being Punished For Not Re-Signing With WWE?
Last month, the Wrestling Observer reported that WWE was negotiating a new deal with Riddle, and “he pretty much agreed to terms for a three-year deal at $400,000 per year guaranteed plus $50,000 for every show in Saudi Arabia.”
Fightful Select then reported that The Original Bro wasn’t interested in the initial deal WWE offered him, but he signed on better terms last month.
However, Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live this week that Riddle hasn’t re-signed with WWE yet, although he pretty much agreed to the deal.
“Remember when they offered him a new deal? I don’t think he’s signed yet. Just want to throw that out there.”
Alvarez stated this because he thinks it could be the reason Riddle lost to United States Champion Bobby Lashley and then got attacked by him during his match against MVP on this week’s RAW.
It was also noted that WWE originally planned to have Riddle vs. Lashley at the Royal Rumble, but there isn’t any mention of him wrestling a singles match at the pay-per-view lately.
