Matt Riddle On Why WWE Isn't Signing Him

Former UFC welterweight, and now current pro wrestling prospect Matt Riddle recently was able to speak to The Irish Daily Mirror before a meet-and-greet event at Over The Top Wrestling in Belfast's Mandela Hall, and was asked about potentially signing with WWE.

"I've talked to [William] Regal and I've talked to Triple H, I've talked to everyone important there. They all like my work, they dig my stuff."

Riddle had been released from his UFC contract after failing two drug tests for marijuana within a year. Triple H recently admitted during a media conference call that the failures had affected their decision to sign him. 

"I think the reason I was fired from the UFC [failing two drug tests within a year] is probably holding me back from signing for WWE," Riddle admitted. "But at the same time the fact I'm not a UFC fighter or a WWE Superstar isn't exactly 'holding me back', it's given me opportunities."
