Report: Riddle Close To Re-Signing With WWE

It looks like The Original Bro is sticking around...

Reports from earlier this week noted Vince McMahon is high on Matt Riddle. The boss reportedly doesn't understand The Original Bro's gimmick, but he likes the man himself and thinks he's very funny. 

Fans can expect to see Riddle in comedic segments on WWE TV for a long time to come. Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that The King Of Bros has "pretty much agreed to terms" with WWE on a new three-year deal. He is guaranteed $400,000 per year under his new contract and will receive an additional $50,000 for every Saudi Arabia show he works. His original deal was due to expire in August 2021. 

Riddle signed with WWE back in August 2018 and appeared on the company's NXT brand until May 2020. He competed in a number of high profile matches on the black and gold brand against the likes of Adam Cole and Finn Balor and he enjoyed a three-month reign as NXT Tag Team Champion with Pete Dunne. Since moving to the main roster, he has spent his time in the mid-card and is reportedly scheduled to face Bobby Lashley for the United States Championship at Royal Rumble 2021.
