Former UFC Fighter Matthew Riddle To Start With WWE In February?

It looks like it won’t be long before we see former UFC fighter and Ultimate Fighter veteran Matthew Riddle inside a WWE ring. According to the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Riddle is expected to start with the company in February.

Riddle reportedly impressed WWE officials during his tryout, however they wanted him to be tested out in the EVOLVE promotion since he had only really wrestled in the Monster Factory gym since leaving MMA.

Many within WWE are said to be high on Riddle’s potential, particularly due to his look and athletic ability, as well as his love for pro wrestling. Riddle actually wanted to be a pro wrestler all along, but ended up in the UFC before he had the connections to make the move.
