Another confirmation of one of pro wrestling's worst-kept-secrets is a Combat Zone Wrestling advertisement that just came out for the promotion's Saturday night New Heights show in Voorhees, New Jersey that is advertising, "Don't miss one of Matt Riddle's final indy appearances before going to WWE!"

Riddle has pulled out of a number of dates, most notably SummerSlam weekend and dates in September over the past week, including being replaced by Trevor Lee in PWG's Battle of Los Angeles.

It is widely expected WWE will announce Riddle at the NXT show in Brooklyn, or some time around that period and he will start in NXT imminently.

Riddle was on Sean Waltman's podcast this week and just said that everyone that wasn't interested in him previously now was (referring to WWE and New Japan) but because of WWE rules on this sort of thing, couldn't commit further. Our communication with him was similar, where he just confirmed both sides being interested but couldn't confirm anything more.


- I can see him going against Zack Rider for the title King of the bros!
Rider is a great wrestler too!

Great call, that would be perfect

Ex-UFC fighter Matt Riddle signs contract with WWE

After a few years on the independent circuit, it seems that the WWE has decided to bring in ex-UFC welterweight Matt Riddle.

By Tim Burke @TB_Money Jul 31, 2018

It has been expected for a long time and rumored seemingly since he decided to leave MMA for pro wrestling, but it seems that Matt Riddle has finally signed with WWE. According to multiple reports, including ones from Ringside News and Bodyslam.net, The King of Bros will be taking his talents to WWE’s NXT brand, possibly as soon as next month.

It was noted that he has been canceling his upcoming independent bookings and removing things for sale from his online store, which increased speculation of the move.

The 32-year-old Riddle was a TUF and UFC competitor from 2008-14, compiling an 8-3 record with two No Contests. Both of those NCs were due to drug test failures for marijuana, and it had been rumored heavily that his continued marijuana use was what kept him off the WWE’s radar for as long as it did.

Riddle has quickly climbed the ranks of top prospects in pro wrestling since his in-ring debut in February 2015, plying his trade in independent promotions around the country (and world), but arguably making the most impact in PWG and Evolve. He received a WWE tryout not long after his debut, but they decided to steer him to work with Evolve at that point.

It remains to be seen how he will be used by WWE, but a fairly long NXT run is pretty standard before a call-up. Also it will be interesting to see if they let him keep a variation of his King of Bros gimmick, or even his real name, if indeed he does make his debut soon.
