Matt Riddle appeared on “The List & Ya Boy” podcast on Fightful recently, and addressed the growing rumors surrounding Riddle and New Japan Pro Wrestling:
When asked about the possibility of working with NJPW: “It’s not 100 percent, but it’s a possibility. It could happen.”
On his discussions with Tiger Hattori recently: “It was broken English, but I don’t think I can get into great detail. All I’m going to say is that it was all positive, all very positive. They like my look, my style and things were positive for sure.”
While Riddle was not in the United States during New Japan’s recent tour in Los Angeles for the G1 Special, he has faced off with NJPW stars such as Tomohiro Ishii and Katsuyori Shibata.
