"I'm Matt Riddle, I don't think that's going to change and I don't want to change, my employers don't want me to change, they really like who I am and what I bring to the table. For the writers and everybody else I think I'm a breath of fresh air, its hard when you got people coming in to tell them what to do but for me, I know what I'm going to do. You can guide me and stuff but I know who Matt Riddle is, I don't have to think about my character. I am Matt Riddle, I'm the original bro." (h/t Wrestling Inc.)
