WWE Superstar and current RAW Tag Team Champion Riddle recently gave his thoughts on Roman Reigns speaking about moving the needle, saying “You’re related to The Rock. Shut up. Like, I’m not impressed, I can beat you up in a real fight. So, shut your mouth. You’re not moving needles.”
According to The Wrestling Observer, numerous backstage officials were not happy with Riddle’s remarks, noting that there are no plans for Riddle to feud with Roman Reigns and the comments were completely unnecessary and unrelated to any storylines. Riddle reportedly received backstage heat from ‘certain circles’ for making the comments.
