Matt Riddle Comments on Still Wanting a Match with Goldberg in the Future

As noted before, former WWE talent Matt Riddle was involved in a backstage incident with WWE Hall of Famer at WWE’s SummerSlam 2019 event in August of 2019. This incident revolved around Riddle badmouthing and calling out Goldberg for a match between the two in the company.

In a recent virtual fan signing event for Signed By Superstars, Matt Riddle gave his thoughts about him still being interested in wanting a match against Goldberg in the future.

“I don’t want to give too much. I, personally, would love to work with William. I think William Goldberg would be a great match. I think I could get something out of him that people haven’t seen in years. I think it’d be great for business. I know it’d be good for me. At the end of the day, if he wants to do it, he’ll do it. If he needs to do it, he’ll do it. There would be a couple places we could do that. Maybe AEW, maybe TNA, maybe New Japan. If it was going to happen, it would probably be AEW.”
