WWE’s ‘Original Bro’, Riddle, has hit out at Bill Goldberg and his recent comments that the company’s current crop of talent need to develop thicker skin.
Appearing on WWE After The Bell with Corey Graves, the number one contender to the WWE Championship talked about a host of things concerning his career including his dealings with the NWO as well as his Royal Rumble bout with Drew McIntyre on January 31, 2021.
During said interview, the former WCW World Heavyweight Champion orated his belief that WWE’s roster was soft and needed thicker skin in order to develop and grow. Now, Riddle – one of the star’s biggest detractors – has once again taken up arms against the legend firing back at his comments with his own retort.
Taking to social media, Riddle posted a video addressed to Goldberg and turned his own words against him while accusing him of having the thinnest skin he’s ever come across:
“Hmmm, so let’s talk about some thick and thin skin, shall we. Bro, really? Really? Okay, you have very, very, very thin skin. It’s like sheep’s skin thin. It’s ultra-thin, extra-sensitive thin. That’s how thin your skin is. Let’s be real, I’m not going to go down the chart of reasons why, but you know why your skin is thin, bro. We all know it and you know what, you really need to stop crying about it. it’s embarrassing, alright. Stop being a baby, and good luck tomorrow bro, you’ll need it. You’re a stallion, Drew.”

Riddle and Goldberg have had a long history of backstage spats, mostly instigated by the former NXT star, when Goldberg refused to be dragged into a war of words. Most recently, Riddle compared his foe to the comedy act Gillberg, stating that the tribute act was ten times the man the real deal could ever be.
Both Riddle and Goldberg came face-to-face in a backstage confrontation at SummerSlam 2019 which ended in a hand-shake between the two men.
However, the master of the Jackhammer isn’t the only target of Riddle’s bile. Brock Lesnar has also ran afoul of the former MMA star which ended in heated argument backstage at the 2020 Royal Rumble when ‘The Beast’ told Riddle to stop calling him out because he would never work with him.
Goldberg will challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at the 2012 Royal Rumble on January 31.
