In case you didn't know...
During the buildup to Super ShowDown, NXT Superstar Matt Riddle took shots at the returning Hall of Famer Goldberg and kept at it after the latter lost his match to The Undertaker at the event.
Soon after, Booker T talked about Riddle's comments, which didn't sit well with The King of Bros, who referred to Booker as an "old WCW wrestler". Recently, WWE veteran Lance Storm took a slight jibe at Riddle, asking whether he owns shoes.
The heart of the matter
Riddle's recent post demanding a match with Goldberg and Dolph Ziggler was responded to by a user, who suggested him to read Chris Jericho's book and stop cutting humorous promos on veterans of the ring. Jericho took notice of the tweet and told Riddle to learn from it.
Riddle responded by asking what's wrong with all these WCW guys and added a warning indicating that he would beat them all up. Riddle mentioned Goldberg, Booker T, Lance Storm, and Chris Jericho in his tweet.
Judging by Jericho's past Twitter altercations, it won't be a surprise if he fires back at Riddle for his comments. Stay tuned for more updates.
