• Roman Reigns Didn’t Like RAW Wrestler’s Recent Comments
RAW wrestler Riddle has been targeting Brock Lesnar and Goldberg for years.
He has insulted them publicly on multiple occasions, in hopes of securing a match against them.
However, that won’t happen. Brock Lesnar shut him down in a face-to-face encounter backstage at Royal Rumble 2020, while WWE books Goldberg with main eventers only, especially now that he’s towards the end of his current contract.
After failing to get a match against those megastars, Riddle shifted his attention towards Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Here’s what the current RAW Tag Team Champion said about “The Tribal Chief” during an interview with Bleacher Report:
“No disrespect to Roman, he seems like a swell fella, but at the same time, it’s like when people say they’re a good parent, you know what? If you were a good parent, your kids would be telling you you’re a good parent.
When he’s saying ‘Acknowledge me’ or ‘I move the needle,’ no, you don’t. You’re related to The Rock. Shut up. Like, I’m not impressed, I can beat you up in a real fight. So, shut your mouth.
You’re not moving needles. I’m the real stallion, RK-Bro is moving the merch, we’re moving the needle, and that’s it. I don’t want to say too much, I’m not trying to get in trouble.
Hey, hats off to him. He’s amazing at what he does. I do like what he does, but at the same time, it’s like, get off your high horse.
You’re in that spot for a reason. You’re not a bro. You’re second generation. I’m first generation.”
Roman Reigns has been the #1 merch seller in WWE for years now, and his merch numbers shot up even more after his heel turn, and his numbers are on the level of John Cena now. Roman recently set the record for most merch sold by a heel wrestler in WWE history.
During a recent appearance on the Cheap Heat podcast, Riddle revealed that Roman didn’t like his comments.
Here’s what he said:
“I’m trying not to talk too much trash anymore. I don’t want to upset the higher ups. I’m not going to mention exact names, but he’s a chief of tribes. I said something about him recently. I’m not saying specific names. It could be anybody.
He wasn’t happy. I talked some trash about me moving the needle and selling merch. He didn’t like what I said. I thought it was hilarious, but not everybody thinks like me.
I don’t think he’s ready. Not that he couldn’t be ready… just like Randy (Orton), I don’t think Randy was ready a couple of years ago for me. It would have been too soon. I think right now, [Roman] is in the same situation, I don’t think he’s ready for me yet.
I ruffled his feathers a little bit and he’s a peacock, he doesn’t like his feathers ruffled. I’ll try that at a later date.”
Riddle noted that he rubbed Goldberg the wrong way a few years ago too, but they are friends now:
“Kind of like I rubbed Bill (Goldberg) the wrong way. I don’t think Bill was ready for a relationship with me, and over time and the years, things have simmered down.”
