• Triple H Supports Matt Riddle’s Disrespectful Behaviour Towards Legends
As we noted before, NXT wrestler Matt Riddle threatened to beat up Chris Jericho after Jericho advised him about not disrespecting old wrestlers (tap here to know more).
Riddle then posted a video where he talked about his dislike for WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg and threatened to beat up Jericho again.
Below is what Riddle said about Goldberg:
“I’ll just say this. I don’t know what’s going on with all these WCW guys, legitimately. I don’t like Goldberg, you know my thing. I’m not getting into it, everybody knows my thing.
It’s true that he’s not on the level and yes, he’s made lots of money, but at the end of the day, when someone wants to get into this business or a passionate fan wants to watch something good I doubt they’re gonna pull up a Goldberg match.
You’re gonna pull one of my matches, or Kurt Angle’s matches, or Chris Benoit’s matches, or Shawn Michaels’ or Bret Hart’s and I’ll go on. Goldberg’s not in that category.”
Riddle then said the following about Jericho:
“I’ll beat the sh*t out of you. I don’t understand it, I don’t get it. You’re soft as hell — maybe back in your prime, but even then I would have beat the sh*t out of you. So listen and learn from me, bro. Shut your mouth.”

During a recent conference call, Triple H was asked to comment on Riddle’s disrespectful behaviour towards legends and below is what The Game said:
“It’s social media. It’s his opinion, he can say it. It is what it is. Matt Riddle’s a very outspoken person so, good for him, he’s a big boy, yeah.”
