Figthful Select have reported that Matt Riddle was not too interested in renewing his WWE contract when it was first offered. However, the WWE changed a few terms of the deal and hoped that Riddle would sign it before the end of 2020.
According to the reports above, Riddle will make $400,000 per year. He will make $1.2 million in the next three years and an additional $50,000 for every show he does in Saudi Arabia. Riddle signed the new contract last week.
Riddle joined the WWE main roster this year, beating AJ Styles on his debut. His character seemed to be floundering early on in his career. However, he seems to be finding his groove now. It also helps that Vince reportedly likes his character even if he doesn’t understand it.
He is currently in a tag team with Jeff Hardy named ‘Hardy Bros’. The former NXT Tag Team Champion could very well have the same accolade in the main roster but could 2021 bring single’s glory? Only time will tell and at 34, Riddle has plenty of that.
