Jim Cornette has shared his less-than-positive thoughts on Matt Riddle while reviewing his match against Seth Rollins at Clash at the Castle.
At Clash at the Castle, ‘The Original Bro’ faced off against Seth Rollins in the main card’s penultimate match. The grudge match came after weeks of feuding between the two superstars and one particularly heated exchange which involved the mention of both men’s families.
After wrestling for just over seventeen minutes, Rollins climbed the second rope and delivered a curb stomp to the ex-UFC fighter. Rollins then pinned Riddle to secure the victory in front of the UK crowd.
In an episode of Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru Show, the iconic wrestling manager shared his thoughts on both the match and, more specifically, Riddle’s performance.
“You know I’ve been critical of Matt Riddle in the past, right? Well, I’m gonna be some more. I just don’t get this fuc*ing guy,”
Cornette opened his thoughts on the contest by re-iterating his negative opinion towards Riddle before going on to call his wrestling style “odd”.
“I just don’t know what the f*ck with Riddle. He’s all kicks or big moves or suplexes. There’s no wrestling to him. You don’t see him drop down, one tackle, hip toss, kick off, arm drag, body slam, drop kick, fire up… whatever.
“It’s all this odd sh*t that he’s doing and the barefoot thing and the goofy hair and the wildlife flying out of his a*s. I just don’t get it.”
The leader of the Cult of Cornette went on to speculate that Riddle may also be difficult to work with and unpredictable in the ring.
Though he was critical of Riddle, Cornette was positive towards Rollins – he even went as far as calling a match he had in 2010 against Davey Richards “modern Flair and Steamboat.”
