Matt Riddle on Vince McMahon

‘At first, they didn’t get it. Nobody got it, Vince didn’t get it. He’s like, ’˜You’re a goof,’ and I was like, ’˜Well, I’m a goof that can, like, kick your ass dude.’ I know I’m goofy, but when I get in that ring, I turn it up.

“At first they didn’t see it, but now they see the in-ring ability with the entertainment side of it. There will probably be a time where they’ll ask me to be serious, and I can be serious too.

“I just like the range I’ll be able to have because I got to do this at the very beginning and probably at the end of my career ’“ I’ll get to be very serious. The fans, the audience, everybody that I work with will be able to see the range of emotions and characters I can play.’
