Matt Riddle On Whether He Actually Wants A Match Against Either Goldberg Or Brock Lesnar

Matt Riddle was recently interviewed by Sportskaeda. During the interview, he revealed that while a match against Brock Lesnar is a legitimate interest of his, he isn’t looking to get in the ring and square off with Goldberg. Here are the highlights:

On Not Wanting A Match With Goldberg:

With Goldberg, I was never even really wanting a match. I mean, I would take it for sure. He’s Bill Goldberg, you know? The guy is money. At the same time, I never wanted a match. It was more so my opinion on his workrate and his wrestling – not his ability to generate money or put butts in seats. It was his salary, his workrate.

And I talked to Goldberg, we talked about it, he thought I was being disrespectful. I was like, “Okay, man, that’s my opinion. I’m just not a huge fan of your work. I’m just not. It’s not great pro wrestling.” It’s like, “You’ve got a great jackhammer, great spear but the wrestling… Uhh.” I’m not lying. I feel like if I’m not lying, I’m not being disrespectful. Especially as that’s how you make your money.

On Wanting To Wrestle Lesnar But Not Being Close To Making It Happen:

Well, the WWE… NXT has made mention of me wrestling Brock in promos and other things like that, but I’ve been calling out Brock since I started wrestling. It’s such a huge goal. If I get close to that, I’ll probably be really successful. If I do it, probably be a legend. Now I’m as close I’ve ever been but I’m still pretty far.

On Whether He’d Rather Be Stuck In A Room With Goldberg Or Chris Jericho:

Probably Jericho, because Goldberg is just… I told you that I talked to him. He’s not a fun guy. At least he’s not fun for me, I’ll say that. He could be fun. Maybe it’s just because of things that had been said already but we did not click. It would just be very terrible.

With Jericho, when he posted that video making fun of my face and all that stuff, like the look, I thought it was hilarious. Personally I think we’d have more fun, even though we are not fans of one other per se, I think we could make each other laugh, regardless. Goldberg not so much, nobody is laughing in that confined space.
