Riddle me this? Wrestlers come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Some are big power wrestlers, some are smaller high fliers, some are technical wrestlers, and others are harder to put into a category. Sometimes they’re hybrids who come into the business with a different set of skills that they learned outside of wrestling. That’s a lucky break for a wrestling company to receive, and if they happen to be a prodigy, so be it. You don’t see those kind of people very often, but WWE might have gotten their hands on one.

According to F4Wonline.com, indy wrestler and former UFC fighter Matt Riddle is possibly heading to WWE. Riddle has recently pulled out of a number of independent wrestling dates, including over Summerslam (and Takeover: Brooklyn IV) weekend. Riddle recently appeared on Sean Waltman’s 1-2-360 podcast and mentioned that companies previously uninterested in him (meaning WWE and New Japan) are interested again, though he didn’t go into detail. In addition to this, Combat Zone Wrestling has put out the following poster, calling Riddle’s July 28 appearance one of his last “before going to WWE”.

In case you wanted to know how he can do against a WWE talent:

WWN Freebie: TJ Perkins vs. Matt Riddle (EVOLVE 69)

Opinion: Riddle would be a great addition to WWE. I was very impressed by some of his work and giving him the WWE facilities and coaching experience would make Riddle’s young career even better. Riddle is only 32 years old and hasn’t even been wrestling three and a half years yet. To be as good as he is with so little experience is remarkable and he could have a very bright future if he went to either promotion.
