Matt Riddle Says He’ll “Beat the Sh*t Out of” Chris Jericho, Responds to Booker T, Lance Storm

Matt Riddle is involved in a Twitter “feud” with Chris Jericho and a few other former wrestlers who have taken little shots at him, who Riddle calls “these WCW guys.”

Chris Jericho

Jericho posted a tweet telling Riddle to “Listen and learn kid” in response to Riddle taking various shots at Goldberg for the past few months.

Riddle then posted this tweet:

And Riddle posted this video responding to not only Jericho, but also Lance Storm and Booker T, who have also taken mild “shots” at Riddle in the past month or so.


Chris Jericho, you came at me. I don’t know why you’re saying ‘listen and learn kid.’ I’ll beat the shit out of you. I don’t understand that. I don’t get it. You’re soft as hell. Maybe back in your prime, but even then I would have beat the shit out of you then. Listen and learn from me, bro. Shut your mouth.

Jericho responded:

Lance Storm

The Storm “beef” apparently started from this seemingly harmless tweet about Riddle wrestling barefoot.

Riddle (from the video above):

Lance, I don’t get it. You’re boring. I remember doing a seminar with you at legends camp at North Carolina and I literally fell asleep during your seminar. I had to be woken up by you. I even apologized at the time. And then to think, years later I’d be at NXT and for some reason, you get on your little Twitter machine and you start talking trash about me. Bro, barefoot or not, I’m still ten times the entertainer you ever were. Keep coaching, keep passing on the tradition, just don’t teach them how to be entertaining because you don’t know how to.

Booker T

Riddle’s “issue” with Booker T seemingly started when Booker said that Riddle “needs a lot of work.”

I was listening to Matt Riddle talk about Goldberg. I got a chance to watch Matt Riddle work. This guy needs a lot of work. You talk about somebody that needs to work on their craft? This Matt Riddle needs to work on his craft and that’s coming from Booker T. I wish Matt Riddle would come down to my school and get a first class wrestling 101 training. Before Matt Riddle starts talking about anybody, Matt Riddle needs to work on his game and work on it very hard and that’s coming from a Hall of Famer. That’s coming from one of the best in the business.

Riddle’s response (from the video above):

Booker T, I honestly really like you, Booker T. Really didn’t want any heat with you. But… you said that I couldn’t work and I’m pretty sure if you watch a couple of my matches, you’ll probably realize you were really wrong about that.


He also talked about Goldberg in the video.

I don’t like Goldberg. Everybody knows what I think, and it’s true. He’s not at the level. And yes, he’s made lots of money, but at the end of the day, when future wrestlers come in, or a passionate fan wants to watch something good, I doubt they’re gonna put on a Bill Goldberg match. They’re gonna put on one of my matches or Kurt Angle’s matches or Chris Benoit or Shawn Michaels or Bret Hart. Goldberg’s not in that category.
