NXT Superstar Matt Riddle recently spoke with the folks from TMZ for an interview where he had some pretty interesting comments to make. Featured below are some of the highlights.
On NXT being different and fresh: “It’s not the same kind of watered-down child’s product that WWE’s kind of turned into a lot. People believe us, even though it’s scripted a lot of the time, it’s more real. It’s more believable.”
On considering at one point staying in NXT rather than going to the WWE main roster: “I want to get to the main roster, but then I was thinking, ‘Maybe I’m thinking about it wrong,’ because NXT is so hot. Maybe we should stay and try and build NXT and make it bigger than RAW and SmackDown Live, and just be the big guy, which isn’t impossible.”
Riddle also spoke about wanting to “fight” John Cena after meeting him at Madison Square Garden in New York, while noting that Cena would likely prefer to “wrestle” him.
