Check out the highlights or watch the full interview below.
Matt Riddle on Triple H:
“Honestly, with Triple H, amazing. I don’t think we’re like family but he’s shown me videos of his kids imitating my entrance in their house during the quarantine. We jib-jab, we joke around. I think we both appreciate hard work in sports entertainment, we appreciate the business.”
Matt Riddle on Vince McMahon:
“I think a lot of people like you said, because of my background stuff, don’t challenge me. I feel like every time I’ve spoken with him or had conversations with him, he challenges me, or he corrects something, ‘Hey, you shouldn’t do that.’ It’s all good stuff, it’s all knowledgeable. I honestly like dealing with Vince.”
