Matt Riddle has been released by the WWE. Riddle took to social media and said:
“Just wanted to inform everyone that I’m no longer with WWE. Thank you for the memories and opportunities also thank you to all the fans for the support and love you give me every time I go out to the ring. See you all soon.”
Riddle’s most recent in-ring appearance occurred on the September 4 edition of WWE Raw, where he joined forces with Drew McIntyre. Riddle made his WWE debut in 2018, signing with the company after a successful career in MMA. He was initially assigned to the NXT brand, where he quickly established himself as one of the most popular stars. He won the NXT Tag Team Championship with Pete Dunne in 2020, and was promoted to the main roster in 2021.
On the main roster, Riddle has won the United States Championship and the Raw Tag Team Championship twice, both times with Randy Orton as part of the tag team RK-Bro. He is also a former WWE Elimination Chamber match winner.
Riddle has also been involved in some controversy during his time in WWE. In 2022, he was suspended for a month for violating WWE’s wellness policy. He has also been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, although he has denied these allegations.
Riddle’s most recent absence from WWE TV followed an incident where he made a sexual harassment accusation against an officer at JFK airport in a now-deleted Instagram post on September 10.
