New WWE NXT Signee Matt Riddle indicated on social media that he moved to Orlando, Florida in late August. Riddle also revealed that he recently started training at The WWE Performance Center in Orlando.
Riddle is said to possibly make his official NXT TV debut at one of the next TV Tapings. The next NXT TV Tapings are scheduled to take place on Thursday, September 20th and Wednesday, October 17th. There are also tapings scheduled for Wednesday, November 28th but those tapings will take place after the huge NXT TakeOver: War Games II Event during Survivor Series weekend in Los Angeles at The Staples Center. According to a recent article on The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there is talk of Riddle wrestling Kassius Ohno at TakeOver: War Games II. The seeds for that feud were already planted this week on NXT TV and social media.
As we already know by now, Riddle recently signed with WWE and made his first appearance for the company at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV during SummerSlam weekend. He was shown sitting in the front row but did not participate in any angles and has not made any appearances since then. Riddle’s final indie date will take place on Sunday, September 30th for PROGRESS Wrestling in London. He will wrestle Mark Haskins that night.
Below are some of Riddle’s recent posts where he talks about working for WWE and being in Orlando:
