PWInsider is reporting that both Matt Riddle and Bianca Belair have been spotted in New York City ahead of tonight’s Monday Night RAW. Both are NXT main event players who have crossed over onto RAW and SmackDown on various occasions in the past year.
Of the two, Bianca makes the most sense, as she has recently battled with Charlotte Flair on NXT TV. She was Rhea Ripley’s opponent for the NXT Women’s Championship at the last TakeOver event, coming up short on both occasions. There are some rumblings that she could be added to the WrestleMania bout between Charlotte and Ripley, making it a triple threat match for one of NXT’s top prizes. An appearance on RAW would certainly point in that direction.
Matt Riddle has had less time on RAW and SmackDown recently, but he does have several reasons why he might want to appear on Monday night. The King of Bros has tweeted several times about Brock Lesnar, expressing that he wants to be the one to retire the current WWE Champion and claim his place as wrestling’s premier MMA star. He’s also started a backstage beef with current Universal Champion Goldberg, and WWE could play into either feud on the road to WrestleMania despite both champions already having opponents for the show of shows.
