The anticipated interaction between Matt Riddle and Goldberg apparently went down backstage at SummerSlam … and “The Original Bro” talked about it on the Watch Along
Riddle was among the panelists when the Watch Along with Pat McAfee began and he didn’t shy away from talking about the former Universal Champion.
When asked which match he was looking forward to most, Riddle said “William Goldberg vs. Dolph Ziggler.” McAfee then brought up how he heard there was some sort of interaction today between Matt and Bill, which prompted a full explanation from the NXT wrestler.
Riddle says he spotted Goldberg’s locker room when suddenly a large man aggressively shouldered him. “I look up, it’s Bill Goldberg,” Matt explained.
Here’s how the rest of the encounter went down, according to Riddle:
“He goes, ‘we got some talking to do!’ And I’m like, ‘well we can talk anytime bro!’ He’s like, ‘yeah?’ And I’m like, ‘yeah!’ And I was like, ‘alright, bro, anytime.’ And he’s like, ‘I’m not your bro!’ And I’m like, ‘Alright, bro. Take it easy. whatever’ And then he’s like, ‘yeah, we’ll see. I’ll see ya later. And hey, it was a pleasure meeting you.’ And I go, ‘the pleasure was all mine, bro.’ And then he goes, ‘I’m not your bro.’ And then I walked away, I had to come here.”
FYI — McAfee claims the encounter was filmed by WWE cameras.
