Matt Riddle

Former UFC star and recently signed WWE talent Matt Riddle made his NXT TakeOver debut earlier tonight during the WarGames: II special in Los Angeles.

Riddle, who was not advertised ahead of time for tonight’s NXT special on the WWE Network, specifically addressed comments by Kassius Ohno earlier in the night.

Excerpt courtesy of Adam Martin’s live NXT TakeOver: WarGames II recap:

Riddle said they are scheduled to wrestle next Wednesday on NXT, but he said we are chilling in L.A. and we have two rings down here and “I’ll knock you out in both of them, bro.”

Here comes Kassius Ohno with a mic in hand. Ohno said Riddle is too stupid to know he shouldn’t be out here right now. He says Riddle is too stupid to know he’s not ready for TakeOver. Ohno suggests the referee rings the bell and hopes Riddle enjoys the moment, because he won’t be able to remember it after he knocks him out “bro.”

Ohno slides in. Riddle with a high knee to Ohno, hooks the leg and gets the pinfall!

Riddle picks up the victory in seconds. He jumps up on the top turnbuckle and starts celebrating immediately. Ohno is already struggling to try and get to his feet.
