'The King of Bros' is at it again and has publicly vowed to be the one to ultimately conquer the 'Beast Incarnate', Brock Lesnar.
During NXT’s live event this weekend, Matt Riddle grabbed a microphone after the night’s main event and passionately stated during the promo that he has never stopped and always kept training knowing that the dream was right there in front of him. He added that it’s just the beginning for him. Matt continued to add that it all started 12 years ago for him and that he will still be going 12 years from now. He then guaranteed the Las Vegas crowd that he will the main reason for Brock Lesnar to retire. Watch Matt Riddle’s NXT Las Vegas promo here.
As noted earlier, Brock Lesnar reportedly did not take kindly to being mentioned on social media by the NXT star while telling Riddle that he was never going to work with him. Matt Riddle's latest callout raises doubts if this could, in fact, be a move made by the WWE top brass to set up a feud between the two fighters. However, whatever happens between Brock Lesnar and Matt Riddle, it is safe to assume that the fight would not happen anytime soon as Brock Lesnar is set to take on Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36.
