    Good for Riddle. He told Dana to go fuck himself. Now, he's probably going to end up making a lot more money than he would have even if he'd peaked in the UFC.

    This gif is mandatory in any Matt Riddle thread.

    He has a undeniable, odd type of charisma. Should be an interesting run

    Quality wrestler from what I've seen.

    There’s such a significant connection between pro wrestling and MMA. This fact drives insecure MMA fans mad

    Matt Riddle has been an undeniable talent on the Indy Circuit. His matches in PROGRESS were pretty great and he had a really unique match with Minoru Suzuki on Wrestlemania weekend.
    Hope he spends a year or two in NXT before jumping to the main card.

    He seemed rubbish from the brief clips I've seen of him from various indy promotions.

    Wasn't he fired by Dana because he publicly said he'd beat his wife and kids if he didn't smoke weed? Something along those lines.

    Fuck em.

    Cool, good for him. I always liked that guy for some reason, and that’s a really good quality for a wrestler to have

    Good, happy for the guy. I remember alot of people kind of laughed and didn't think he'd make it when he first started doing it, now he's going to be making more than he ever would've fighting in the UFC.
