• WWE Star Apologizes To Goldberg
RAW Tag Team Champion Riddle was interviewed by TalkSport, where he talked about about his backstage heat with Old School WCW Legend Goldberg and how they recently had a conversation on the flight home from Saudi Arabia after the Crown Jewel 2021 PPV.
Here’s what Riddle said:
“Everybody here knows I can throw down and I’m going to talk sh*t. It’s one of those things where I can’t change that. I talk trash. For me, isn’t that my job? Make people care about what we’re doing and talk trash so people say ‘oh man, I’d watch that fight!’ or is it real? That’s my job, that’s what I do. And it rubs some people the wrong way.
But at the end of the day, even Bill [Goldberg] and maybe one day a certain Beast, they come to understand what I’m trying to do.
Bill and I had a conversation. It was like ‘Bill, I’m sorry if I rubbed you the wrong way’ on the way back from Saudi Arabia. We were on the plane, had a couple of cocktails. I’m not saying we’re best friends, but we are doing way better than we were.
I think just us talking and seeing him work [longer matches this year], you just get to know somebody and understand them. He’s like me. If you just listen to the dirt sheets or watch me do interviews, you might hate me (laughs).
But in real life, I’m a pretty nice guy. I talk crap, but that’s just to drum up interest. He realises that, I think we’re all good.”
