#5 Matt Riddle is a Triple H guy in WWE
It is difficult to narrow a list of ‘Triple H Guys’ down to just three people. After all, thanks to WWE Network documentaries over the last few years, fans have been able to witness the bond that the NXT founder has formed with WWE’s up-and-coming Superstars in emotional backstage moments at shows.
In the case of Matt Riddle, “The Original Bro” made his first NXT in-ring appearance in October 2018 and he went on to become a key Superstar on Triple H’s brand in the 18 months that followed.
Upon his call-up to WWE SmackDown in May 2020, Riddle told ESPN MMA that he has an “amazing” relationship with Triple H and they often joke around with each other.
“With Triple H, amazing. I don’t think we’re like family but he’s showed me videos of his kids imitating my entrance in their house during the quarantine. We jib jab, we joke around, and I think we both appreciate hard work in sports entertainment. We appreciate the business.” [H/T 411mania.com]
Riddle said he had only spoken to Vince McMahon on a couple of occasions before joining the WWE SmackDown roster, and every conversation they had was “one-hundred percent professional”.
