WWE’s Riddle: I Wouldn't Be Where I Am Today Without PWG
Riddle wrestled for PWG from 2016 - 2018
Riddle is riding high in WWE right now, reigning as one half of the RAW Tag Team Champions alongside Randy Orton as RKBro, but Riddle has admitted he wouldn’t be where he is today without his run in California’s Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.
Speaking with Ryan Satin on the Out of Character podcast, Riddle looked back on his time in Reseda, saying:
"I wish I would have gotten a good year in BOLA [The Battle of Los Angeles], it was just never my time at PWG, but I did have the Tag Team Championships," Riddle said. "I think I never got the singles push in PWG because I was always a champion somewhere I was so busy wrestling everywhere. I loved wrestling for PWG, but I'm going to be honest, they didn't really pay my full rate. To be fair, they're flying guys from Japan and Australia and they have these supershows, so I get it. The experience, the exposure, and being in that building and being received at that time, I couldn't replace those moments. Without PWG, I wouldn't be here today. Even though I wasn't getting paid as much as I wish I was, it was worth its weight in gold and that's why everyone that went there knew that going on in, but was still willing to destroy themselves at PWG because the crowd, exposure, experience, and everything else.”
Riddle reigned as PWG Tag Team Champions with Jeff Cobb for six months from October 2017 to April 2018.
