Back at the Royal Rumble, Matt Riddle was involved in a verbal altercation backstage with then WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. Both Superstars remained calm during their confrontation, but The Beast Incarnate reportedly told Riddle to stop tagging him on social media and said they would never work together inside the squared circle.
The King Of Bros has continued advocating for the match since the incident and recently discussed the potential matchup during a recent interview with Fansided.
Riddle said: "I shook the 8-ball and it's not looking good, it's not looking good. I'll be honest. Am I going to stop? No. I really want the match, even if he takes some of the things I said wrong or personal. I get it, I guess, I mean I don't, but whatever. At the end of the day, I think I'm going to become valuable enough where he'll want the match and when I do that and that day comes, I'll get my dream match. But that's a lot of work and I've got a lot of work ahead of me.
"Hey, I think [the Performance Center] would be the safest spot to go at it. I think it'd be good. It's not a thing of disrespect. I just think I have a very good style and I think Brock has an amazing style and I think the two going against one another, big guy versus little guy but the little guy can hold up, I think there's something there. I'm pretty legit. People might forget it, but I'm pretty good."
