Matt Riddle Says He’s Interested In A Match With Rob Van Dam, More


During a recent interview with WWE India, Matt Riddle commented on wanting to work a match with Rob Van Dam, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On his journey to become United States champion: “I am kinda used to capture things quickly. I started amateur wrestling when I was in 7th grade and I won the Nationals by the time when I was like a junior. With pro-wrestling, even though I got to the main roster and I got the [United States] title within a year, it’s still from the independent scene, to NXT, to SmackDown and then to RAW, and then to finally become the United States Champion. People say it’s pretty quick, but for me it is the longest it took for me to get to a title.”

On coming up with the ‘Bro’ gimmick: “I get this question all the time – where do you come up with the Bro. Well, I said bro like in my whole life. I say it a lot. Its just a word. But when I when you get to professional wrestling the fans want something to chant, something to say, something to do for you. And unlike other sports and entertainment, the fans play a huge part in it. I thought the word would be a great way to get involved. So, when I got to Evolve, I said it in promos and stuff. But more so, when I finish opponents in matches, I would yell bro. So, that’s how it started.”

On working with Rob Van Dam: “I don’t know if I want to go one on one with him or I want to form a super tag team with him. We got mutual respect for one another but I think we can also fight one another too. He is the newly inducted Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam. If I can get a singles match or a tag match with Rob Van Dam, I would be pretty juice. I looked up to his career early on and my career and his work rate, the way he talks, the way he does his things. He didn’t care. I don’t care. He is one of a kind.”
