• SmackDown Wrestler Unhappy About The Idea Of Feuding With Matt Riddle
Matt Riddle made his debut on SmackDown in shocking fashion last week, when he defeated Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles in a non-title match.
As we noted earlier, a feud with King Corbin is being planned for The Original Bro after his big win over Styles.
However, Corbin isn’t happy with the idea, per Gary Cassidy.
“Sources have indicated to me that, while the plan is for a Matt Riddle vs Baron Corbin rivalry going forward, Corbin only recently found out about those plans and wasn’t too happy with them – insisting that Riddle should have to defeat five enhancement talents before facing him.”
