Matt Riddle opens up on real life heat with Seth Rollins. The two WWE Superstars do not get along after Riddle’s wife body shamed Becky Lynch.
During a recent conversation with Talksport’s Alex McCarthy, Matt Riddle confirmed that there was indeed legitimate heat between him and Seth Rollins. Rumors began swirling around Survivor Series last year when Rollins, on a WWE Watch Along stream, said that he had no interest in ever facing Riddle.
The point of contention between the two was the body shaming comments made by Riddle’s wife on Becky Lynch in a now deleted instagram post from 2019.
Riddle admitted to that being the reason why Rollins didn’t like him before admitting that it was understandable. He then went on to reveal that he and Rollins have since made up, narrating the incident that helped Rollins forgive him.

“I’ll be honest, I’ve met Seth multiple times and he’s met me and I don’t think we’ll ever be best friends [laughs]. I don’t think we like one another, we’re just two different people. [Although] we both love wrestling. I know my significant other said something about Becky that they didn’t like and I also did not like or agree with. Seth didn’t like me after that and I don’t think Becky liked me or my wife either, which is understandable. It is what it is.
“After Survivor Series… I tried to talk to Seth beforehand but he kind of avoided me and he did bow out early [in the match]. I don’t know if he did that because he didn’t want to work with me or whatever because there was three other guys in the match. He could have done something. He was in there with Sheamus, he could have done a spot.
“After Survivor Series, because he was there I got to talk to him and I said ‘Hey’ and a camera came up to us to film it and I said ‘No, don’t come over here, don’t film this. It’s between me and him.’ We talked. I told him – and this is exactly what I said – I said ‘Hey man, what was said, I don’t agree with it. I thought it was bullcr*p. It’s not cool. I just want you to know I apologise. I apologise on her behalf as well. On top of that I think you’re a great performer and if you would ever have it in your heart to work with me, I would love that.
“And, I know you’re taking some time off because Becky is pregnant, about to have a kid. Just want to wish you luck, congratulations, enjoy your time with your beautiful girlfriend – at the time, now wife – and your beautiful child.’ And he literally looked at me and he goes ‘Holy s***. I didn’t expect that. Everything I hear from people and what I expected… that was really cool. Thank you.’ And that’s where we ended it.
“I said ‘Thank you for listening and giving me the time, bro. I hope we’re good now.’ And I will say this, we’re good enough to be working together, I don’t think we’re friends. I’ll tell you this, that last curb stomp he gave me at the Royal Rumble, we’re not friends [laughs]. When I get in the ring with him, he’s going to get it! Put that online! Can we get back in the ring? I need to repay that curb stomp, bro!”
