#5. Update on the backstage beef between Seth Rollins and Riddle in WWE
It was noted that an Instagram post from Riddle's wife, in which she took a shot at Becky Lynch, was one of the prime reasons behind the beef between Riddle and Rollins. The Original Bro's negative comments about Rollins, as revealed by a fan, didn't help matters either as the speculation about the heat between the Superstars continued to dominate the world of wrestling.
It has now been revealed in a Fightful Select report that Seth Rollins and Riddle might have squashed their beef.
Fightul spoke to sources who were backstage at Survivor Series 2020, and it was revealed that Riddle and Rollins approached each other at the pay-per-view and talked about their issues. The problems were reportedly rectified, and both Superstars seem open to working with each other.
People in WWE noted that while Rollins didn't look at Riddle during their Survivor Series match, the beef between the two seems to have been squashed, and that's great news for the fans.
