In a recent interview with FOX News, former WWE superstar Matt Riddle discussed several topics, including his release from the company.
“I loved every second of it, I was a multiple-time Tag Team Champion with Randy, I was an NXT Tag Team Champion, I won the Dusty Cup Classic, I beat Bobby Lashley for the United States Championship, I wrestled multiple WrestleMania’s, Royal Rumble’s.
No, I have no hard feelings, and I would just say with WWE, they run a ship, they run it a certain way, and when you work for WWE, everything you do is under a magnifying glass, it doesn’t matter if you did anything wrong, if you did something right, if it was in-between, it’s perception, and the WWE unfortunately, if a situation happens and they don’t like the perception, they make their decision, but I’m not going to argue with them, that’s their company, I don’t run it, I just worked there.
I’m thankful that they gave me the time that they did and that’s all I can say. I have zero hard feelings, I don’t know if I can say that for them, they might have some hard feelings, but I feel like they’re pretty professional, they’re more about that paper, that money, so I don’t think there’s any hard feelings, I mean they did have to pay me for three months when I didn’t work, that was on them, they fired me.”
