After being laid out and left broken in the ring by Solo Sikoa on the December 5th edition of Monday Night Raw, WWE announced that Matt Riddle would be out of action for six weeks.
However, this was followed a sensation report which claimed that Riddle was actually suspended having being sent to rehab after failing a drug test. Furthermore, this was Riddle’s second failed test in a matter of months, having previously been pulled up in July.
At the time it was reported that Matt Riddle’s planned SummerSlam clash with Seth Rollins was scrapped and moved to Clash At The Castle for creative reasons.
However, a source close to Riddle denied the story, noting that he was taking time off to deal with his divorce.
Matt Riddle Under The Microscope
Adult film star Jordan Maxx has now attempted to disprove this story along with a series of other claims. The series of tweets began with Maxx sharing a story which featured Riddle kissing fellow adult entertainer Misha Montana.
The star added that Riddle had told him he wasn’t using drugs anymore, only find find out that he had lied, and was also seeing Montana.

“Does it make you feel better about yourself to kick people when they’re down? Try to imagine for one second, the man you’ve spent the last 6 months with, who said “I love you” for the first time 2 months ago, is all of a sudden making out with someone else WHO IS IN YOUR INDUSTRY, and then, rather than keeping plans for Christmas and NYE, he’s going to rehab? Do you have any idea how confusing and hurtful that is?”
In responding to someone suggesting she tried to prevent Matt Riddle from getting the help he needs, Maxx replied:
“Can you even read? That’s not what I’m saying at all. He told me that he quit drugs, and then to find out he’s a) with another girl b) doing those drugs with her and c) failing drug tests so he has to go to rehab for it is disappointing”
Maxx returned to the original thread to post the following:
“Adding this here since it seems many of you are overlooking it: I’m not mad that he’s in rehab. He told me that he quit drugs, and then to find out he’s a) with another girl b) doing those drugs with her and c) failing drug tests so he has to go to rehab for it is disappointing
I do hope that he takes rehab seriously and gets the help he so desperately needs so that he can be the best version of who he is for his future partners, his kids, and himself”
Inside The Ropes will continue to update this story as it develops. At time of writing there has been no official word from WWE or Matt Riddle regarding the claims.
