• SmackDown Wrestler Wanted To Retire The Undertaker, Says He Has The Utmost Respect For Brock Lesnar

WWE SmackDown wrestler Matt Riddle was the guest on this week’s WWE After The Bell podcast with Corey Graves.

Riddle discussed his relation with Brock Lesnar and what was his goal when he joined WWE.

Below is what Riddle said:

“I’ll be honest with you. The guy has it all. I think he’s taken my comments as like, literal disrespect. I think he really hates me. Which, hey, ok. I get it. I rubbed you the wrong way. I told everybody that I get it, I’ll stay away. I won’t call people out anymore. I won’t call these people out anymore.

I’m not going to go away. I’m going to make myself valuable enough to where the money is on the table. I know I can do that. When I first started wrestling, when I sold the house and everything, people would ask me what is my goal for wrestling. I would say that I like to set goals that are almost unattainable because in the process of trying to get to that goal, you’re probably going to be great in the process.

So they asked, what’s your goal? I want to retire The Undertaker and I want to retire Brock Lesner. Brock, nothing but the utmost respect and I think my words were taken as disrespectful which is fine, but at the end of the day, I just know what I have to do.

I need to make myself valuable enough to get in the ring with him and I hope I can do it.”
