Matt Riddle: The McRiddle Tag Team

Before his release, Riddle was actively involved in a tag team with Drew McIntyre on WWE RAW. This duo was embroiled in a feud with the likes of the New Day and Viking Raiders.

WWE insiders, including the reputable WrestleVotes, revealed that the company had ‘significant plans’ for the tag team, starting with the name: McRiddle.

So much so, that merchandise items bearing the team’s name were already in the design phase. The name “McRiddle” was not just a passing thought; it was a serious venture that WWE had invested in.
