Before being included in the growing #SpeakingOut movement this week, former UFC fighter turned pro wrestling star Matt Riddle spoke with ESPN MMA reporter Ariel Helwani to promote his debut on WWE Friday Night SmackDown this week.
Featured below are some quick highlights from the interview.
On dealing with Triple H and a cool personal video he saw of ‘The Game’s’ family: “Honestly, with Triple H, amazing. I don’t think we’re like family but he’s shown me videos of his kids imitating my entrance in their house during the quarantine. We jib-jab, we joke around. I think we both appreciate hard work in sports entertainment, we appreciate the business.”
On enjoying working with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon: “I think a lot of people like you said, because of my background stuff, don’t challenge me. I feel like every time I’ve spoken with him or had conversations with him, he challenges me, or he corrects something, ‘Hey, you shouldn’t do that.’ It’s all good stuff, it’s all knowledgeable. I honestly like dealing with Vince.”
