WWE has decided to slightly modify Matt Riddle's name, dropping the "Matt" and simply referring to him as "Riddle" going forward.

The decision was only made today but WWE.com was quick to reflect the change on the superstar's official profile page and removing other references on the site.

Riddle took to Twitter to comment on the change.

"People it’s okay I’ve been called Riddle most my life," Riddle wrote regarding his name change. "I actually prefer it and it’s my real last name."
