Riddle posted another video (which he later deleted) and said the following about Goldberg:
“Goldberg, Goldberg. You lived up to the hype yet again. You’re absolutely the worst wrestler in the business, bro. And that’s not an opinion, that’s a fact.”
You can watch this deleted video below:
Riddle went on to explain why he’s disrespecting Goldberg by tweeting the following:
I love Pro Wrestling so much and that’s why I get mad at certain people because they’re unsafe, dangerous and a liability to everyone else, I’ve worked hard to get where I am and this is only the beginning!

According to Brad Shepard, Riddle might get heat for his comments as his comments might reflect negatively on some other wrestlers as well:
“The same source who told me Matt Riddle was gaining support in the office is now telling me that Matt is getting way too ‘fast and loose’ with his Twitter.
Here’s a quote for you:
‘Just a week after I mentioned how the office likes him, he’s starting to trend in the wrong direction — nobody likes the I told you so Twitter stuff. Also, around here you have to be careful about calling out the old guys.
If you say Goldberg stinks and he’s old and washed up, what are you saying about Undertaker, Shane McMahon, Hunter, lots of older guys worked that show and are washed up. He has to slow down with that ASAP’.”
