Riddle has been tearing it up on the Independent Circuit over the past few years but has been hinting that he is heading to WWE in the most recent months and now it appears that he has finally achieved his dream.
The former MMA fighter has been able to stand out on every stage he has been on and now he will be looking forward to the challenge that NXT will give to him.
There were earlier reports that WWE creatives were thinking of adding Matt Riddle to the NXT Championship match in place of Aleister Black since he is already considered to be a rising star by many officials backstage. This plan obviously didn't come into fruition since the match is now a Last Man Standing match between Johnny Gargano and Champion Tommaso Ciampa, but it shows how much faith the WWE Universe have in Matt Riddle to even consider the fact that that could be WWE's overall plan.
Takeover War Games is now just three months away and it's entirely feasible that Matt Riddle could be making his debut as part of the show the night before Survivor Series.
