Matt Riddle may not be at the place where he’s ready to face off against the upper echelon of WWE talent yet, but that won’t stop him from aiming there. Speaking to Daily DDT about the state of NXT and more, Riddle said that he’d still like to see his dream match against Brock Lesnar take place.
Speaking on the match, Riddle acknowledged that it wasn’t looking too great yet, but won’t give up hope. “I shook the 8-ball and it’s not looking good, it’s not looking good (laughs),” he said. “ I’ll be honest. Am I going to stop? No. I really want the match, even if he takes some of the things I said wrong or personal. I get it, I guess, I mean I don’t, but whatever. At the end of the day, I think I’m going to become valuable enough where he’ll want the match and when I do that and that day comes, I’ll get my dream match. But that’s a lot of work and I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.
“Hey, I think [the Performance Center] would be the safest spot to go at it (laughs). I think it’d be good. It’s not a thing of disrespect. I just think I have a very good style and I think Brock has an amazing style and I think the two going against one another, big guy versus little guy but the little guy can hold up, I think there’s something there. I’m pretty legit. People might forget it, but I’m pretty good.”
Whether or not Riddle ever gets the chance to take on Lesnar has yet to be seen, but that won’t stop Riddle from continuing to strive to get to the point where he’s big enough to warrant a match.
