• Update On Which Brand Matt Riddle Will Join On The WWE Main Roster
As we noted last night, former NXT Tag Team Champion Matt Riddle is set to join the WWE main roster soon.
PWInsider is reporting that Riddle is scheduled for a call-up to SmackDown.
There have been plans to move Riddle to the blue brand since before WrestleMania 36, but those plans were put on hold coming out of that event.
Discussions regarding him joining the main roster resumed several weeks ago.
The Original Bro may have his last NXT match against Timothy Thatcher in a cage this Wednesday. He could possibly show up on the main roster this week or the next week.
