• Vince McMahon Reportedly Doesn’t See RAW Wrestler As A Main Event Star
Riddle made his main roster debut this past summer on SmackDown, where he did some big things in the beginning, got drafted to RAW later and lost his first name there.
He’s a regular part of the red brand these days, and is likely going to be in a Tag Team with Jeff Hardy in the coming weeks.
Dave Meltzer discussed Vince McMahon’s view of Riddle on the Wrestling Observer Radio, and revealed that the WWE CEO “really likes” Riddle and thinks that he’s “very funny in his own weird way.”
McMahon doesn’t understand Riddle’s gimmick, but he thinks he’s funny so he should be given TV time.
Although Riddle is seen as a star who’s worthy of getting TV time, McMahon doesn’t see him as a main event star.
