Triple H Discusses WWE Signing Matt Riddle

Triple H commented on the recent signing of former UFC star Matt Riddle, who was shown in the crowd during NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV on Saturday night. WWE had been previously hesitant to sign Riddle due to his history related to marijuana use.

“Matt brings a lot to the table” Triple H said, according to Newsweek.

“He’s an amazing athlete, smart in the way he’s adapted and what he did in his MMA career,” Levesque told media in a post-show press conference. “He’s learned a lot on his own in a very brief period of time to get to where he is. I’ve watched him for awhile, his ups and downs, and you know there just comes a time when somebody gets good enough.”

Triple H believes that adding him to WWE, and the NXT roster, will be the next step in his development.

“I think he’s ready to get brought in and be taken the rest of the way. I also think he’s matured as a person.” Triple H continued.

“I think he’s realized where he wants to get in this business as opposed to just being in the business. We think it’s the right time, but only time will tell. He’s a very talented guy and the sky’s the limit. We’ll see what he can do. I feel sometimes people say ‘you bring them in and just go with it.’ It’s not that simple. Not everybody makes it, not everything works. There’s a lot of factors. I believe in him and I believe he has a lot of potential.”
