Seth Rollins got personal when trying to anger Matt Riddle, referencing his divorce during an incredible segment on WWE Raw.
The wild virtual “face-off” happened ahead of their battle at Clash at the Castle this weekend. On Saturday, WWE will hold its first major stadium event in the UK for thirty years in Cardiff with Clash at the Castle.
Roman Reigns headlines a mouth-watering card, looking to defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Drew McIntyre. Elsewhere, Liv Morgan and Shayna Baszler will fight for the SmackDown women’s championship.
Finally, Sheamus will challenge Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship, with other brilliant matches to look forward to as well.
Many fans are excited for the battle between Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Matt Riddle, though. The pair are clearly not on good terms, even clashing ahead of their appearance at last night’s Raw.
Parking lot brawl
Outside of the arena in Pittsburgh, which hosted Raw last night, Rollins and Riddle finally got to one another once more.
The pair started scrapping on sight, treating fans who were outside the arena to a little extra action. However, their fight was shut down very quickly. Company officials and referees intervened with the fighting stars, forcing them to go their separate ways.
As a result of their scrap, WWE put Rollins and Riddle in separate rooms for a virtual face-off. Despite this, fans still saw some fiery exchanges between the stars.
Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle in explosive segment
Sitting in locations unknown to the other, the pair fielded questions from Corey Graves. After a few fractious lines, Riddle irked Rollins with a comment about his marriage.
“Seth, I’m going to prove to you that there is only one man in your marriage,” said Riddle. “And that’s Becky [Lynch], bro.”
This comment clearly aggravated Rollins, who then flipped the family comments back on his rival.
“[If] you’re going to talk about my family, I’ll talk about your family,” said Rollins. “Oh wait, you ain’t got one, cos your wife divorced you and took your kid. And they don’t want to see your b***h a** anymore, huh?”
Matt Riddle and his wife, Lisa, divorced a few months ago. Unsurprisingly, he event, he was fuming when Rollins mentioned it.
In response, an irate Matt Riddle repeatedly asked Seth Rollins, “Where are you?”, as he became angrier and angrier.
“You don’t get it,” Riddle fumed. “I’m not going to beat you up; I’m going to f**k you up bro – Where the f**k are you?
“Where is he? Dude, I’m going to smash your face in! Yeah, keep playing games, bro, keep playing games! I’m going to f**k you up.”
Unfortunately, for Riddle, this only prompted laughter from his rival, who had clearly achieved his aim of getting under Riddle’s skin. Rollins then left his interview room early, leaving Riddle stewing in his anger alone, on camera.
The bad blood between the two stars promises to make for an unbelievable battle on Saturday night.
