Former WWE United States Champion Matt Riddle was recently announced for another wrestling show. Matt Riddle announced his departure from WWE via social media. In a shocking release spree, various big names had to part ways with the company, including Dolph Ziggler, Mustafa Ali, and many more.
Combat 1 Wrestling, a wrestling promotion set up in Michigan, recently took to their Instagram account to share the announcement of Matt Riddle for their show, Wrestlemrama: Bro-Down. The event is scheduled for February 8, 2024.
The former RK-Bro member recently welcomed his fourth child, a baby boy with his fiancée Misha Montana. He has three children with his ex-wife, Lisa Rennie.
Wrestling legend and close friend of Matt Riddle, Rob Van Dam, spoke to Sportskeeda Wrestling Senior Editor Bill Apter following his release from the company. The former WWE Champion believes that the infamous airport incident involving The Original Bro played a massive role in the latter’s release from his contract. He also talked about the possibility of WWE re-signing Riddle somewhere down the line despite all the drama and allegations in the past.
Rob Van Dam further stated, “If we know for sure that all of that [accusations against Riddle] happened, then maybe he wouldn’t be quite as over as a babyface. But it’s like who knows, we tend to try to give people the benefit of a doubt when they deserve it. A lot of [expletive] added up with him. It doesn’t mean he won’t be back.”
