• WWE Had Major Plans For Former 24/7 Champion Prior To The COVID-19 Pandemic
Former WWE 24/7 Champion Riddick Moss took time off from WWE programming for the past couple of months due to the Coronavirus pandemic. He decided to stay at home as his brother suffers from cystic fibrosis and Moss travelling would put his health at risk.
Fightful Select is reporting that WWE had major plans for Moss before he asked for time off. Former Executive Director of RAW, Paul Heyman, was high on him, and decided to give time off to Moss himself, so that Moss wouldn’t get heat from WWE officials.
Moss returned to WWE programming on an episode of Main Event last month. He’s now being featured regularly on RAW Underground.
