UPDATE: As we previously reported here on eWn (see below), Matt Riddle was not in attendance at this week’s RAW TV tapings. Additionally, he’s been pulled from all of WWE’s live events this weekend.

According to a report from Pwinsider, the word making the rounds backstage at RAW is that Riddle was pulled from the shows due to a “medical illness.”


ORIGINAL: WWE has taken the decision to remove Matt Riddle from his scheduled appearances following allegations of sexual harassment made against a police officer at JFK airport in New York City on Sunday.

The accusations were initially made on Instagram, but the post has since been deleted.

According to law enforcement sources, Port Authority officers were alerted to a disorderly person who was disembarking from a plane, later identified as Riddle. Witnesses report that Riddle appeared apologetic during his interaction with the police, and no police report was filed.

The Port Authority is conducting an internal investigation into the matter. WWE has not issued a public statement as of this writing.

Riddle will not be appearing at tonight’s RAW or this weekend’s live events in Idaho and Washington, where he had previously been scheduled to perform.
