Matt Riddle Addresses WWE Suspension Rumors

Last updated

WWE star Matt Riddle has found himself in controversial turmoil and there have been several rumors surrounding him. He was recently removed from WWE programming noting that he will be sidelined for several weeks.

A report then emerged from Cassidy Haynes of a week later, claiming that Riddle had failed a drug test and would be going to rehab ’“ the apparent ’˜real’ reason he was written off TV.

The report even claimed it was a second offense of 2022 as Riddle failed a drug test in the summer, which is what led to his planned Clash at the Castle match with Seth Rollins being canceled. Dave Meltzer later reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that a source ‘close to Riddle’ had denied the story, and the source said the reason for Riddle being off is because of the pressure of going through a divorce.

Meltzer had further explained some discrepancies between the report and WWE’s drug testing policy, and said ‘either WWE has secretly changed its policy or something doesn’t add up’.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful tweeted:

I’d heard the BodySlam story was accurate and saw a lot of stuff to back it up

Matt Riddle breaks his silence

Riddle recently took to social media to break his silence on the situation amid the allegations, and how he has been working a lot on himself.

He said:

I’ve been working a lot on myself lately and have been saying no and setting boundaries for the first time ever and certain people aren’t happy about it, but I couldn’t be healthier or happier.

Thank you for all the support
