• Real Reason Why WWE Wrestler Doesn’t Like Goldberg
WWE NXT wrestler Matt Riddle said some negative things about WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg after WWE Super ShowDown 2019 and you can tap here to read it.
During a recent edition of Figure Four Weekly, Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez revealed why Riddle has an issue with Goldberg:
“This is what I was told about why Matt Riddle doesn’t like Bill Goldberg. The way it was explained to me was — and this is not a defense of Matt Riddle because I don’t think he should have tweeted, and I’ll also defend Goldberg afterwards — Matt Riddle has two great loves in his life.
One of them is Professional Wrestling and one of them is Mixed martial arts. In his mind Goldberg is a guy who made millions and millions of dollars and did not love professional wrestling and he also had a gimmick where basically he pretended to be a mixed martial arts fighter which he was not. These are apparently the things that really bothered Matt Riddle.”
