Hey, bro, the rumors are longer just that, as WWE is calling up one of its hottest prospects, Matt Riddle, to Smackdown, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle tonight announced on the show.
Angle didn’t state a day for his debut, but Riddle will be bringing his special brand of bro-nastics to the blue brand soon enough.
Riddle lost a hard-fought battle with former tag team partner Timothy Thatcher in NXT’s first-ever cage fight Wednesday, with Angle serving as special guest referee, doing his best to maintain order in an otherwise crazy match.
Unfortunately for Thatcher, he lost two teeth in the brutal, high-octane skirmish.
Riddle, a former UFC fighter, last appeared on the main roster at WWE’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in January.
