Matt Riddle recently sat down with Riju Dasgupta of Sportskeeda Wrestling where he discussed a wide range of topics.
During it, he looked back on his promo segment with John Cena on the post-Money in the Bank episode of Raw.
“John Cena is pretty cool. Originally, when we first met, we didn’t see eye to eye,” Riddle noted. “He didn’t really understand what a bro was, but now he gets it. We’re bros. After John did that little promo with me on the mic, we bro’d off to each other, Randy hit me up, and he goes, ‘I don’t know if you know this kid, but John Cena just gave you the rub.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I know what the rub is Randy.
“Randy talks to me like I don’t know what wrestling is sometimes, and I have to be like, ‘Randy, I’ve wrestled on the indies. I’ve been in WWE a couple of years, not at your level, for sure, but I know what I’m doing. I know what the rub is. I know what Cena did. We’re cool. I got this,’ but I was very excited about that. John doesn’t have to and didn’t have to do that, and he went out of his way to make it part of the show and we did it. So made me happy and then we even tagged together later that night on the darker part of the show, where it was off camera. It was a lot of fun.”
