Riddle Says Roman Reigns “Wasn’t Happy” With His Comments

Roman Reigns

Riddle has admitted that WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was not pleased with his comments about the Tribal Chief after SummerSlam.

Riddle responded to Roman Reigns’ tweet that he was “legitimately needle moving” after winning the Raw Tag Team Titles at SummerSlam. The Original Bro reacted angrily to Reigns’ tweet, saying he didn’t move the needle, wasn’t impressed and could beat him up in a real fight.

Riddle’s comments were later reported to have gotten him some backstage flak from those who weren’t impressed with his choice of words.

Reigns “wasn’t happy” with the fighting talk, according to the former MMA star. In an interview with Peter Rosenberg on his Cheap Heat podcast, Riddle stated that he would not name names before referring to a “chief of tribes:”

“I’m trying not to talk too much trash anymore. I don’t want to upset the higher ups. I’m not going to mention exact names, but he’s a chief of tribes. I said something about him recently. I’m not saying specific names. It could be anybody. He wasn’t happy. I talked some trash about me moving the needle and selling merch. He didn’t like what I said. I thought it was hilarious, but not everybody thinks like me.”

Riddle has previously stated his desire to face both Brock Lesnar and Goldberg, despite occasionally irritating both Superstars. Continuing, Riddle stated that he hoped to be able to compete against the former World Champions:

“Then Brock, I still want the match with Brock, but I promised him I wouldn’t call him out anymore. He asked me not to a couple of years ago at a Royal Rumble, so I respect your wishes, Mr. Beast. I won’t call you out.”

“I will say this, Bill Goldberg, I’ll be honest, I think I’ve grown on the guy. I think he’s grown on me a little. I think that match could probably happen. We both went to Saudi, we were both on the same airplane, and we bumped into each other quite a few times on that airplane.”

“I think we can get that match. I think we can pull that one-off. No promises, but I’m hoping in 2022 we get Riddle vs Goldberg. It will sell tickets. Out of those matchups, I see that one happening the most.”

Since winning the Raw Tag Team Championships with Randy Orton at SummerSlam, the duo has defeated every challenger on the red brand. The champions retained their title at Crown Jewel over former champions AJ Styles and Omos before fending off a challenge from The Dirty Dawgs on the most recent episode of Raw.
