Raw Tag Team Champion Riddle has commented on Brock Lesnar making his return to WWE at SummerSlam and the one thing he didn’t like about it.
Riddle is not shy when it comes to calling out some of wrestling’s biggest superstars. He has previously been open about wanting to retire Brock Lesnar and has been vocal in his criticism of WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg as well.
Now appearing on WWE’s The Bump, Riddle has discussed Lesnar’s epic return at SummerSlam when he confronted WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns after the main event:
“Brock – I’m gonna call him Mr. Beast. Because that was on the door in the back. And I was like, “Who the hell is Mr. Beast?” I’m pretty sure that’s Brock. Mr. Beast came back, Mr. Beast came down to the ring and Mr. Beast did his thing. I’m not a huge fan of Mr. Beast’s man bun.”
“But hey I’m a fan of his work. I’m a fan of his caliber of athleticism. So, good for him.”
Like Lesnar, Riddle was also a star of the Ultimate Fighting Championship although he pursued his MMA career before entering the world of pro wrestling. He has a lifetime 8-3 record in professional MMA although two further wins were subsequently overturned after The Original Bro tested positive for cannabis.
While SummerSlam was a monumental night for Brock Lesnar, it was also a landmark night in Riddle’s WWE career. Along with RK-Bro partner Randy Orton, Riddle won his second main roster gold in the company as the two men defeated AJ Styles and the giant Omos for the Raw Tag Team Championship.
To celebrate their win on Raw, Riddle gifted Orton a brand new scooter that The Viper used to attack Omos during Riddle’s singles victory over The Phenomenal AJ Styles.
