NXT star Matt Riddle dropped a video on Monday putting a bunch of famous wrestling stars on blast, including Chris Jericho … who he says he’d “beat the sh*t” out of.
This all began over the weekend when a fan tweeted an excerpt from one of Jericho’s books saying Matt should read the advice. In the book, Y2J says wrestlers shouldn’t cut promos about older stars that focus on their age because it ultimately makes both look bad.
Chris shared the excerpt with his following and wrote, “Listen and learn kid.”
Riddle quote tweeted Y2J’s response and wrote, “What’s wrong with these WCW guys? First Goldberg then Booker T and now a really boring wrestler who hates barefoot Bros (Lance Storm) and last but not least Y2J. It’s almost like you all wanna get beat up before you retire ‘Listen and learn Bros.'”
One day later, “The King of Bros” elaborated on his feelings with a video.
The video begins with Riddle saying he doesn’t understand why he’s been a target for ex-WCW wrestlers and reiterated his feelings on Goldberg. “Yes, he’s made lots of money. But at the end of the day — when future wrestlers come in or somebody wants to get in this business or a passionate fan wants to watch something good — I doubt they’re gonna pull up a Bill Goldberg match,” he explained. “They’re gonna pull up one of my matches, or Kurt Angle’s matches, or Chris Benoit matches, or Shawn Michaels or Bret Hart.”
Riddle then focused his attention on The Ayatollah of Rock-n-Rolla, saying, “Chris Jericho, you came at me! I don’t know why you’re saying ‘Listen and learn kid.’ I’ll beat the sh*t out of you. I don’t understand that. I don’t get it. You’re soft as hell. Maybe back in your prime, but even then I would’ve beat the sh*t out of you THEN!”
“Listen and learn from me, bro … shut your mouth,” he added.
The 33-year-old went on to address comments made about him by Booker T, as well as talk about falling asleep during a seminar with Lance Storm.
