The Backstage Confrontation Between Bill Goldberg And Matt Riddle Is Even Funnier Than You’d Imagined

If you’ve been following the ongoing drama between WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg and NXT Superstar Matt Riddle, you’re going to love this clip from Chronicle.

Earlier this year, Riddle was one of many (many) insulting Goldberg’s Crown Jewel match against The Undertaker, which even Goldberg himself admitted was a, “perfect storm of crappiness.” Former MMA fighter Riddle made it clear that he thinks Goldberg is the worst wrestler in the world, and the two reportedly had a backstage confrontation at SummerSlam. Here’s Riddle’s telling of the back-and-forth:

Thanks to Goldberg’s episode of Chronicle we finally have footage, and while Riddle’s description of what went down is completely accurate, the actual confrontation is so much funnier somehow.

Goldberg’s, “first of all, I’m not your bro … could’ve been, a long time ago, you put a stop to that!” is wonderfully passive-aggressive. Matt Riddle is spectacularly Matt Riddle for the entire one-on-one, because I’m pretty sure “Matt Riddle” is the only thing he can be, God bless him.

We’re pretty sure these two are never going to have a WWE match for a variety of reasons, but oh boy, would we want to see them have a real fight. Whether Riddle’s wearing his shoes or not.
