WWE US Champion Riddle spoke to ViBe & Wrestling recently, talking about the switch from UFC to pro wrestling amongst other things.
One of the highlights of the interview was Riddle commenting on his relationship with various WWE Legends. Since his days on the independent scene, through NXT and eventually WWE’s main roster, Riddle has not been shy at calling out some of WWE’s biggest names, most notably Goldberg and Brock Lesnar.
Various reports have emerged since Riddle joined WWE that his attitude has rubbed many up the wrong way, but Riddle has denied having heat:
“A lot of people think that I have heat with the legends but the majority of the legends like me. I see Ric Flair all the time. He has been around now that he has this little thing with Lacey and he is one of the greatest. He always give some tips and advice. Booker T always gives me advice to put my shoes on. He doesn’t like seeing me wrestle bare foot, he says: ‘Go and get boots man!’ and I’m like, ‘It’s Riddle, Booker…’
“Carlito was there the other day, he is a nice guy; Christian, he gave me some tips and said: ‘Keep being a stallion’ and I say, ‘You too.’ Edge is there all the time now, he is pretty legendary, he is cool. But do you know who was the best legend that was there? GILLBERG!! The guy is one of the nicest people that I’ve ever met. He wrestled, he’s been there, he’s been up, he’s been down… he was a pleasure, he gave great advice to everybody in the locker room and told stories about the past so he was a true treat.”
