"So I'm glad that he's getting his very own singles match. I think that both Matt riddle and Roderick strong know that this match has to just crush. I mean look at what else is on the card, this match has to crush and I think that it will. Matt riddle needs the victory at this point, you know, otherwise if met rental doesn't get this victory, it's confirmed. He can't do this in high pressure situations. Because he couldn't get the North American championship at the last takeover. You know, if Matt riddle can't beat Roderick, strong than we have a confirmation here that Matt riddle cannot perform in high pressure situations. It's very, very important for Matt riddle all the teen dream versus Tyler breeze North American championship is on the line. I'm excited for this one. I'm excited to see Tyler breeze back Tyler breeze is a guy who I loved that we're going to see a classic Tyler breeze match. You know, I was a big fan of Tyler in annex t, but the annex t the Tyler breeze left behind a completely different animal than the next that he's walking into. And I think that he's going to have a tough go of it. I don't think Tyler breeze realizes how good annexed is now you can go back and watch those Tyler breeze matches. But here's the thing, about annex t nobody sits there and looks at the class. That's there now and says, oh man, the class, that's there. Now is good. But they had to deal with the generation. In before them. They wouldn't be able to cut it. No. Every next class gets better and better and better, every takeover show, gets better and better and better. So, you know, I think Tyler breeze may be in for a rude awakening ladder, match annexed tag team championship. This is the show stealer. This is going to be, you got only Larkin and Danny Burch. You got the street prophets. You got the undisputed era Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby fish and you have the forgotten sons, I think that, that this is a moment for both the forgotten sons in the street prophets to really shine. I think this is similar to Roderick strong. I think the street prophets are do or die scenario street profits have been around for a long time. They've been under the surface for a long time. They've been in second tier team for a long time. The street prophets have to give the performance of a lifetime. The undisputed era top tier team. I think the undisputed era of the favorites to win, but the street profits, I think are the ones because the forgotten sons, they've been around for a while not as long as the street prophets and only, and Danny Burge. They minute team nearly as long as the street providence, and they also have pretty successful single careers behind them, you know which the street privates. Do not. So I think that the street profits are the ones that need to put on the performance of a lifetime. But I think the undisputed areas going to be tough to beat Yoshi arrive versus shayna baiser next women's championship. Excuse me. I talked about this last week. I think I'm really looking forward to this one. Looking at e Shirai and how she's evolved, as a performer and stepped up. I'm just so impressed with what she's done over the last few weeks. And next TV, I think Shannon bazars going to beat her. But I think he oh sure is going to be impressive, and then the next championship match is Adam Cole versus Johnny Gargano. You know, I think that Adam Cole is very good at figuring out ways to win. Johnny Gargano is to me, only really good at winning when he absolutely has to win. When Johnny Gargano is backed completely into a corner, he'll win. But if he's not all the way back into that corner. He sometimes doesn't fight to get his way out of it as hard as he would. Otherwise. Maybe Adam calls night his own saying it may be am Kohl's night. I appreciate all of you being here for this week state of wrestling, and this week told not Sam wrestling by guest. I will be in Bridgeport for antics takeover, twenty-five this Saturday. Make sure you tune into the WWE network..

"I wrestled him any volved when he was telling me end, they years ago food is like my first year evolved. And now, you know, he's where he's I'm here. And I think you know, I've deadly volved to a point where I think we could really have a craze. Easy one. Kyle. So Riley of wrestled all around the world. We have get work. I've wrestled Keithly in. Oh, I like wrestling the bigger guys personally lay into them harder. And you know, and then they can dish it back out. And I don't mind so so the I don't know that there's there's a lot of big guys. But I just feel like not a lot of the big guys are in like that physician right now, you know, like in the top five title contenders. And they laws was in annexed TV now he's going up. Yeah. Same thing with heavy machine. Or now, they're going up to those were like, I wouldn't mind mixing with the big does, you know? I would pay for those promos alone. He's he's just fantastic to talk to you know, it's funny is you mentioned earlier about you go into the performance center for tryout kind of not feel like it was going to work out. So going outside of that. Because you just wanted to start to to figure this out. You don't get out there. Get some experience get some ring time, it probably the seemingly worked out better for you that way because you got to have, you know, different go all over the world and experience different styles and work with different people of all, you know. And then you come back, and you make yourself into a commodity and get this buzz about yourself, and you come back, and you probably will is gonna make you bigger than you would have been if you would just gone there in the first place, you feel about it. I think there would have been buzzed regardless. Just because he must started pro wrestling, there was a somewhat buzz. But I think is the way I did it, and I paid my, you know, I I've definitely paid my dues. I'm sure Indy. Wrestling, basic, you know, I did the ball as I you know, and I traveled a lot of people complain about like, the WWE scheduling like, oh, it's crazy. Not that. It isn't. It is crazy. But when I was on the Indies I remember one weekend. I was in Florida. There is in Indiana, Wednesday, Florida Thursday. Germany Friday, Germany said or day and then England Sunday, and then I came home Monday. And I was like in that I did it again like that Thursday, and I went to Australia for like four days or five days. So I'm like I've been through some tough travel schedules where they feel like WWE, they usually like stay regional. They usually go a, California, San Jose. You know, like dry if they try they try to take it a little bit easier on your. Yep. Because you have so many shows within the year, and that's one thing with Indy. Wrestling now is you're you're just going to take the booking where he can get it. Right. Where you can get it may tackling. The I get I show up when the bell rings, and I had to call the match Vom getting dressed like let's go it's a semi merge at intermission. You know, it's a real hustle. I think that's I think that's also why you've evolved into this. This this character this this performer that the wrestling fan respects because you didn't come in and just try to skate by on being a legit 'em UFC guy. You put the work in you put the time in and like, you said, you paid your blocking do's, and I think that's that's commendable man, really is Israel. Slim's awesome. Man. He even even cursed on that FOX. Terminal. That was that was my my stallion style. Just fucking kicked in their man. I Just. just. So all of that happens, and it leads up to your day, but at which ends up happening at takeover, and which wasn't initially supposed to happen to take over. But did happen take takeover. So you you get house. You know, you get word that you're gonna be working Chris caches Ono and you're going to be doing takeover like that's feel pretty good. Right. Like, that's a that's a great way to kick into this thing..

"So I was getting a lot of heat as women say kudos to you as well for, you know, recognizing that and just, you know, still buckling down and putting in the work in like you had before with the amateur wrestling and all those other sorts of things, but you know, the comes with the territory as well. Right. Not to mention the fact that you left your seat before even had a chance to to have a title match and even win a Tyler or anything like that. Which could have completely changed your pro wrestling queer because you weren't quite a household name as far as. That goes. So now, you kinda starting from the ground floor and working your way up again in pro wrestling, kind of like, you were an MA. Yeah. And I remember like I naturally revolve at evolved forty nine when I came out that crowd chanted baby Lessner. They call they chanted baby listener with an and then the next night in Long Island the crowd chanted. You can't wrestle. So and then and then I'll say the I wrestled try all over recipe, bald started getting booked at other companies like beyond and Ceesay w an A W in Chicago and PWG and a bunch of other places just be thirty getting better service line progress in the UK and OTT in Ireland and read pro and by the time, I got back to that one building where they said, I couldn't wrestle all they kept chanting was, bro. And I was wrestling ricochet in Tony news. And all they were saying was row. Oh. So what part of you, you know, use that to drive you throughout all those those other bookings into to get better. And it's not your fault. It's just you agreeing in terms of pro wrestling. That's all. Yeah. But at the same time, you know is not like goes having terrible matches. It was the lack of being there long enough. And yet Ruben myself, even WWE it's a big thing in even if you didn't prove yourself on the Indies, it's always a you get crap for it here as well. You know, you're also trying to figure out you know, what you are as a person and how to get that connection with the crowd as well other than just being oh this enemy fighter that came over. Like, you're trying to throw things against the wall and see if they stick. And also, you know, you try not to throw away your past as far as being this legit fighter wrestler and trying to figure out a way to adapt. Some of those moves into a pro wrestling style to kind of make it all work. So whoever when I first started wrestling, and the like, I just wanted to do wrestling moves they saw I was doing swan bombs, frogs, splashes and and. Spine busters and DDT doing everything. I've wanted to do for not everything was world class at, you know, saying yeah. So like me throwing a clothesline isn't as pretty as me throwing a kick or punch in now. Like, I said, I was watching some you're matching their like the knee strikes. He do are incredible. Like, the they mesh really well the way that you throw them in use them within the context of a match. I think it fits perfect like those to me, look, really Crispin and believable. Yeah. My my knees rice fairly is my back elbow. Not so much. But what's cool is like you said the landscape changed, and and that style did change where it has become more of a. You know hybrid of styles. And and now, you know, you do see guys with knee strikes or backup bows and much more of a striking thing or a grappling thing our submission thing. What you know, you said you were doing spine busters and clotheslines. It's cool that you can be able to do those and be able to throw those out whenever you want to. But when was it that you started to realize, right? I can take my past and really kind of focused this into style. Would I started a league this you people ever asked me for tips when the guy shouldn't even be given tips that I always say like, I always just play now to my strengths. So it's like, I know like I'm super strong in certain spots..

"I could finally afford pay for us every month. You know, keep up with the product easily with one destination, and you know, and they would watch off and on by hadn't been watching like hard. And like, but I was watching it. And I was like, you know, what I feel like the landscape is changed drastically like I feel like the world of the giants isn't just all giant anymore. It's like this guy's mice this guy smaller than me, you know, not even built as big. You know, the landscape is really changed in WWE. And for a guy like me. It's perfect. You know, twenty twenty two because I always think that the success of the smaller weight classes in MMA. Has helped make that more valuable and pro wrestling for sure. Yeah. I'll be honest once you get over valley. And I think you guys can agree like this huge guys. But once you get over about like to ten or twenty six foot, if you hit somebody cleaning the face or jolly, you're you're going to hurt them later the bad. It's like once you get to a certain size, and you know, how to fight it's dangerous. You know? So it's even small guys even one hundred and fifty five pound guys. Like they know how to throw a punch like their dangerous. You know, it's it it really has. And may maybe that, you know, that's a good thing is done that you know, because little guys are dangerous. You gotta take everybody serious. I think so, you know, and I think it's influenced a lot more than maybe people within the industry want to admit, you know, going back to what you said you were in college, and you like you. You saw the landscape then and MMA was a way you could go that wasn't previously. There, you know, for guys like, Jane, I am in may wasn't a thing. Like, he said, it was taped trading, and it was almost like the faces of death VHS like you couldn't really get to see a UFC fighting less. You got it from somebody who got it from somebody. And it's like you whispered it by the time, you're in college. It's viable thing. And and I do those TV. Yeah. And so now, it's a thing. And I do think that weight classes, and also, you know, Rhonda, moving the needle in terms of UFC pay per views helped the women's evolution in the WWE. I think it very they go hand in hand agree later you now lie all of that's happening. And it's got to be tough, you know, between injuries between other people getting injuries. And you know, how how often a fight doesn't happen in that industry. So you decide right. It is. And you start wrestling in the Indies. How how's that? I'll come about. You know, when do you start to feel like this could be a thing for you? Like, you're good at it will was listed living in Vegas. And I was watching wrestling. Guess. I called my buddy. And I was like, hey. Like, what do you think you've got into pro wrestling? And he was like, Matt thank you. It'd be done. If you didn't you now, especially the way, the fighting was going there everything. So I started training start training at the monster factory also trained at you know, the RO h DOJ Joe and Ceesay w and I trained there, and eventually I started I had to try WWE I trained with Sean Waldman at the monster factory. And he put a word in for me. And I got a tryout, you know, the performance center did that I hit him up. And I was like, hey, the talking to like bring of honor I've been talking to other companies, and I want to do something. But if you guys aren't gonna use me right away. Like, you know, like I wanna do help me and they're like well have you heard of a company called evolves? And I was like, no. And they're like well look 'em up. And I looked up and other cool. And I got in touch with gifts allow ski in ever since. Then I've been working the end is and slowly. But surely, it started off pretty bad in the sense. I go work decent. I wasn't great. But I could work, but the crowds didn't like me. They didn't respect me. I didn't put my time in. I was just some enemy guy that was on the same pedestal as Gaza, I've been wrestling the Indies for ten years, you know..

"You know, and he was super nice, Yvonne, my kids like when they were born he bought them gifts. You know, he bought them like little Burberry set of clothing. It was very nice, very classy. I've never since Bob my kids anything that night. So. But yeah, you know, like, I said it was fine. Like one day. No things just went really sour, you know. So when it goes sour like that. And you know, it's it's much like when when guys are in in WWE and something happens and they get released. It's almost like that. Oh shit. You know, that's the biggest company wasn't like that for you. Like, what am I gonna do now? Or is this like, hey, maybe we'll try Ballatore. Maybe I'll try one of these other smaller ones and just trying to build my way back. There was that the mindset or whatever you think in when that happened. Well, of course, you know, I'll be is. I just had my third kid. I just had Zach my son. So I had my third kid break before that fight. So it was pretty brutal. But at the same time I was already writing riding like a four fight win streak. I had multiple like submission bonuses and stuff like that. So I was doing fine in the sense for money at that time. But yeah, I was just like I wanna sign somewhere. I wanna get fights. I wanted to keep this ride going. You know, very now I'm like wearing top ten in the world. And if I can get like another victory, I'll be ranked even higher, you know, just keep going and going, you know, and. Well wall that that's going on. Is there any part of your mind that like my back pocket? There's that pro wrestling thing, we was that. Or were you just have to be solely by? See it was. But at the same time I had held like a huge world title yet. And I was already wearing top ten you see, which basically means I could probably hold a world, title and physically any other company, you know, not saying companies owned as good or better visiting some way classes there are. But at that point, the welterweight division was extremely stacked in the NFC. And I was confident anywhere. I went in. Time say peer when Saint Pierre was champion was up like that time period. Yeah. That's it. Was it wasn't murder throat. Yeah. And everybody, you know. And like I said with the testing back, then it was everybody was pretty savage. So, you know. Yeah. Great. Well, they've all stallions. Savage stallions. The. This is the ultimate style. Yeah. Yeah. But but yeah. So I was like, yeah. I I just wanted to win a title either in bell or titan FC, and I actually did sign a contract with titan FC or a legacy f c but then they pin what they said they could. So then bell or bought me out of that contract mean bell tour had a couple of disagreements and I'm not legally allowed to talk about it. So that that's a wash and they released me in. I can't say anything, but then tighten up see after that. They signed me, then they they didn't offer me much. They I believe the five five thousand flat, which I was getting paid like fifty you know, in the UFC when I was at my peak and five thousand five thousand dollar bonus. If you finish the guy, and I was like, you know, what if you can guarantee that I'm I'm. Down and we made it happen. And add to that. I want to fight again for them. But injuries and the Sa's and everything else they could get in the way of any fights, promote whatever it was started out, and and fights just kept falling through, and I was supposed to fight Ben Saunders. My last fight for type one of my fights for titan of the and I hurt my ankle. And I couldn't make the fight and. I was at home, I was recovering. And I was watching pro wrestling it was when the network just dropped for that nine ninety nine. So very guy like me..

Message and data rates may apply. Question for you, though. As far as they have in this kind of whirlwind, you know, getting the UFC two to the show getting on TV analyst sorta thing did you just kind of forget about pro wrestling at this point, just solely focus on enemy. Yeah. Now that I didn't watch pro wrestling. But it was more like hit or miss or I might go like a couple of months watching it. You know what I'm saying? I was busy training for fights. And and of course, during this whole time like I've meet my why and we have kids so like during this whole process of fighting the UFC and doing all that I also have like my three kids and me, and my wife, and I you know, and that's a whole busy roller coaster in. Yeah. I mean, he's Slater has the shirt I got kids, but you got kids, man. Like that. Again. I got kids not shirt needed. And as we've talked about on the show because we're dads as well. That's the thing. Let alone like burgeoning career in MMA. So how how do you juggle all of that? You know, before the kids, I just kinda live pretty fast and loose. You know, just on. Yeah. Yeah. Fever superstar in. But then, you know, once once I had the kids they can't matured me up, and I'm still really mature and was still immature then as well. You know, but I it really matured me up and made me focus a lot more. I think that's when I started taking fighting a little more serious than looking at it as instead of doing like sweet, I'm like twenty something. I'm really good at fighting the cage to like, hey, maybe I should try to like be like a real contender. You know, like train properly for fights and try to give bonuses and gopher fight of the nights and submission of the knights rather than just he no sit back and ground and pound people. You know? So as a, you know, a lot, you know, it's UFC changes play store changes your brain to changes, your focus, and it gives you like even like. Like, you said before it was just like, you know, I'm a kid. I'm just doing some because I like doing it. But now there's a best behind everything. Yeah. Just sit back and be broke is I live off like a candidate tune in rom, and like, you know, I don't need much. I'm cheat. Three kids like damn like, we have bills. We have phones we You ain't ain't gonna. gonna cell phone. You got to pay for it, dude. In cream do this interview without? So people always ask that one of the first things asked me like oh. What's it like to work for Vince? Right. That that's one of the first questions that are did, you know, the rock. And so I'm gonna ask you what's it like to work for Dana? You know up until him riba me apart on Fox Sports. And being really mean it was it was pleasant like. I know. Really work relationship. Everybody in the office into like me. I the only thing before my fire and they're upset because I would talk about at the time. I was in the UFC they would allow fighters to us like. A lot of prescribed drugs as long as doctors though, I was scrawled medical marijuana. And they didn't agree with it. Because it wasn't federally legal. But they were allowing a lot of fighters to use like prescribed testosterone thrived of the things was like, you're letting waiters use performance enhancing drugs. And I don't think that's appropriate and didn't want me talking about that. We had those probably the only like back and forth behead that was negative other than that mean. Dana had a great relationship..

"The fight the fight that put the UFC on the map, and as I learned as being in college. And I still looked for wrestling vows watching a lot. And then that is as well. And the thing with them, and may is weight classes. So it's not just all there's an open market, who's it's whatever, you know. While pro wrestling, there's no way classes, and if there is it's you know, it's still pretty big, you know, you still have to be a pretty solid dude to be in professional wrestling, you know, but with my size and amateur skills.

"That's what you that's what you enjoy. Seville and the seventies were saying, you know, you had the Briscoes, and you had you know, the Dory. Funk of the world. There was guys from that era that really that had that style. But without you know, some of the athleticism in terms of like, the the agility the acrobatics like RV D or or guys like that you brought to the table. But so you like that kind of physical style what happened next like you see your fan of this. And you see it but being a fan of something and then taking the next step those are two different things. So how's that work? Yeah. Well, you know, growing up I was always a fan of wrestling buzz. Also like a fan of that the name stuff, and I always wanted to wrestle. But like when your kid, how do you do pro wrestling, especially I mean, great, you know, what it's like you've done it. But I for me, it seemed like the easiest way for me was to get into amateur wrestling and go go that route, you know, because it was a place where I was allowed to go. I did have to pay anything extra and I could wrestle a couple hours a day on mats. And you know, and it was competitive knows like the closest thing I could get to wrestling. So did you start like amateur wrestling with thoughts of ham, and to do this amateurism because it might help me if I ever become a pro wrestler like was at the process or he just ought to do something challenging oh. The the whole wanted to get a wrestling. I'd never wanted to do some enough -i. Sure. But but. At the same time. It was definitely four pro wrestling at first knows like, you know, what I'll get stronger be all my brothers friends didn't amateur wrestling. And I just watched a bunch of pro wrestling. So when they came over, and let's wrestle in. No, not on the trampoline, jump, and they go for like DDT's, and they'd just like suplex me like pin? Just like, well, that's. I did all these cool moves, and he just not you know, what me down so. All right. Maybe I should learn this amateur wrestling take of that style. Plus it can't hurt you now. And when I started doing that I fell in love with that as well. You know, because I'm just I I like combat sports there. There's something about them. And it's a one on one thing. You know, it's not like a team sport you might train with the team. But at the end of the day, you're in there by yourself. You win you lose, you know, it's it's on you. You know? Yeah. I can imagine when you were coming up, you know, as far as when when when edge, and I were coming up, you know, UFC to us was distinct that you got on a bootleg tape UVA chess tape that you you watched in the living room, they wasn't on pay per view, which is underground kind of thing. So realistically, it wasn't a way to make a living or it was just this kind of pool kind of barbaric thing to watch. And but when when you were kind of growing up in in high school, and they said coming up the ram mature wrestling and seeing what it evolved into and became. Legit sport with the rule change in other things and being viable way to to earn a living like what was it that kind of piqued your interest as far as going that direction? I will I wrestled in high school one states nationals went to college to east stroudsburg as wrestling there. And you know freshman year, I think was the first year the ultimate fighter was on with Forrest Griffin. And they have the original cast right at the the funny. Yeah..

"So here's the thing. We've never met you before. And then we told our listeners that they're going to be like, you know, peeking in on the first conversation between the three of us. So this is could get weird. It could get crazy. I don't know what to expect. What do you expect man? I, you know, I expect the ordinary conversation with Chris. As ordinary as they get right? Sounds going man. I caught a little bit of your of the show. They did on you as far as the kind of moving into the Orlando in the PC, and I didn't really see it the last night. And I saw the last part of the where you got locked out of your house and had to sleep in a car with your family that kind of had to saw. Yeah. Have you plan? All these things you do your, you know day, but at the takeovers. You drive down to Florida. Get locked out of the house yard, he paid a month for you know. Happens. So. Yeah. Well, make for a good story. Oh, yeah. Fantastic story about right? Stories real life, storytelling. Right. So you're Pennsylvania. Dude, you so now we will talk about the FCC and ultimate fighter and all of those things. But you know, growing up were you a fan of pro wrestling, or you know, what was it that caused you to or were you just kind of naturally inclined to do physical things and you have see 'em as what you lean towards dead. We'll growing up. My family wasn't really into sports. So we didn't really watch sports. And then one day I stumbled across on the TV pro wrestling couldn't even tell you what match it was. I was probably like six years old. And my parents really ever since you saw then I I was hooked ever since. Then I was I I watched pro wrestling in watched WCW watch WWF love DC w now is in Pennsylvania over the summers. And so it was always on like the late night cable. You know, and it was is good. You know, it's funny because wrestling it's funny that like a lot of that happens to two guys and girls that get into business thing that they've never really seen it before it happened to me where I was same thing. You know, I was home with a broken arm and I flipped to the TV. And I didn't know what wrestling wasn't. I saw it, and it was hoped instantly. And it was same kind of thing. Just there's something about. Right. Right. There's something about it. And you know, I think what it was for me. Like, we never really watched sports and wrestling's not just a sport. You know, there's a lot of elements to there's a lot of character, and you know, their stories and there's a like going on. So I think for anybody that has an imagination, you know. It's a it's a really good time down so input. Who were the people? Like who who did you see and go man like, I know for me the first time I ever saw wrestling. It was Roddy piper. I didn't know it at the time. I just saw this dude and army green and yellow trunks. And I was like what is he doing? What is this? And it was like three years later that I saw HOGAN just my little brain exploded. So who were the performers that you gravitated to? I was always into more like really competitive wrestling. So I I like people that like, you know, really push the pays like one of my favorites. I watch it still broadband damn though, like you need to see w or even like to Jerry and like occurred angle, and you know, I go on listing people, but like their way to you. We'll wait you can keep listening them until you say go ahead and Chris twenty second and twenty third. But I I like I like people that really pushed the boundary of like it being like a show and the spore in for the pace is it's it's so it's fast, it's competitive. But it's a it makes it a hundred percent believable to right. So like, we're sometimes even the way I wrestled now, it's like I like to try to push pays really physical pace, you know, that it's like it's like taking that that blurred line between entertainment and and hundred percent, legit sport. When you when you can take that away and have everybody in the audience by and bite on every single thing that you do..

"You know, the difference interesting takes. All right, Matt riddle. Our guest here on MA junkie, radio Callan at loved this interview on Twitter at super king of brothers, John Orlando, the co host, Jay Kellenberger's co host on the action junkies podcasts. He's sitting in with us today, John. What do you remember? It'll him out. I was wondering what's been. What was would you say is harder on your body? Was it m a training and fighting going through all that or or actual pro wrestling because a lot of guys I see, like you know, as they get towards the end of their career, like the chocolate Dell's of the world and the the, you know there and seemed to be in better shape than like a whole Cogan or you know, diamond Dallas page before he started doing yoga. Like what? What would you say is harder on your body. The is three yard, you know? And for me, I felt like they was a lot more intense and a lot harder body for the simple reason for me, I had to cut so much way to make one hundred seventy pounds to fight. So like me, I like to twenty now and that cut down to ten or so. And everybody fights watch lately knows you go to those cuts, but I used to get injured all the timely. You look at my career. I had to pull out of so many fights that broke a hand or tore ligament or twenty. Or you know, a lot of things happen. And since I serve pro wrestling like three and a half four years ago, and I've had over hundreds of batches, traveled the world, and I don't think I've been or knock on wood. I don't think I've been injured once like a sprinkle or like maybe a jammed thing, or I mean, the other day I did get the top of my finger chopped off with a chair on accident, but you know that'll happen. But I was still able to be, and I still performed. Twice the next day. You know, go back that riddle wrestling to work around the injuries too. So something hurts. You won't not gonna jump off in a fight. It doesn't matter. It hurts. Still have to go with any better. Hope it works. You know, how did you get your finger topped off. Usually. There's usually used metal chairs this time. It was a plastic chairs, still don't five in a plastic chairs actually at the EC w arena Philly. And I got hit in the back with the chair, and the chair broke off my back and the piece went flying and that t's just so happen to catch the top of my pinky and just chop it all. And at the time I didn't any evidence that we. Oh, yeah. I didn't think it was chopped off. I must have just like you must've like slapped it or so, you know, and I like looked down. I just feel cool blood, my fingers missing just like, oh, and yeah, so that that's what happened. Wow. All right. We also have you have seen mentally Julian marquess here with us, Jillian, whatever, marital so there is a lot of imitate fighters that transition over to, you know, pro wrestling. Have you had the opportunity in your years of pro wrestling to actually like tag team or be a part of with other other fighters? Yeah. I've wrestled a lot of Dan said Tom on, and you know, but I've tagged Tom Lawlor as well. We were. You were the tag team known as the filthy Bros. is he's. And I'm the bro. So filthy Brooks. So yeah, I love it and and I've worked with a lot of Japanese and they don't like Manolas Yuki and Chaban and stuff like that. They fought and like I know Shibata thought tried. I don't know if you did. He did more paying trace I think, but and I'll have matches with those guys and I love it because they're more shoot, you know, the more real like I don't walk up. I don't do like a headlock. He take over. I'm doing. I'm fighting this guy respond for like two thousand three thousand people, and we don't call anything other than maybe the finish. I'll be like, okay, you finish me maybe fifteen minutes into the chip. Okay, cool. So you out there and then we just fight and then into ten minutes jokes. So what you're saying is that you go before your guys is competition..

"Yeah. Good for you. Yeah. All right goes, what do you have Matt riddle? There's a lot of mixed martial artists that have been pro wrestling fans and have given it a try, but they weren't as successful as you are at some point, they just either went back down to may or they just said pro wrestling with two tough. Do you think that these guys because a lot of them are fighters that accomplished a lot and mixed martial arts and we know they're tough. Do you think maybe they just were frustrated too early or maybe gave up a little too early, or is there just something about you and your particular drive that that was able to push through it. This is the one thing that's different from pro wrestling and exports is it doesn't matter how did you are how Jack you are, how stroll you are health fast or how tough you are. It doesn't how cool you are. How get you in talk? None of out good-looking. It doesn't matter at the end of the day. You have to be good with politics. When it comes to wrestling, you gotta be get in the ring. You gotta get on the mic. You gotta be charismatic. We walk into a room people. You gotta make people turn their heads. It doesn't mean you have to make a scene, but it has to be something about you, you know. And I would say a lot of players that seem that whereas successful, it's because they are great fighters, world class athletes. I try to perform center now here in Florida, and there's full champions across that, whatever you name it. There's the world champion here at one point was you know, and he, you know, it's just it's just one of those things. It's it's just world class athletes, you know, and I kind of lost my train of thought there. I. Going going into the pro wrestling world, you still feel like you somewhat carry that may torture a little bit along with you. Of course, you know is other guys that are doing great work as well. Got Shane, just the, do you know you got Tom Lawlor, you got me. There's, there's a lot of people making the transition and doing it. Well, granted, there's a lot of guys like, say, king mope or example who's a big fan of professional wrestling world class played a world class athlete, but I don't think he's like the greatest pro wrestler. I've ever seen, you know, but I think it's more than moving is it's that charisma, you know, do you miss it? It all mixed martial arts. Do you keep up with it? I do miss it. I watched the fights. I watched dominate this week weekend. You know, I watched it. They keep up with you. I would say this thing I feel bad for the fighters. You know, I was a fighter too, and I know that khloe you know, things were little different. I, I know think time changes, but I know like my world when I was in. An as every everything was tough, like life was just so tough. Everything was a struggle. Bills were struggle. Even with you on top in the USC you still don't get paid, but a couple times a year and sometimes bunny it's still an issue now, and I'm just glad to have like, I'm just really glad to have that all behind it. Have you know, just deal to focus on my craft. I get to perform four times a week, at least you know, for live audiences when I fought, I'd only three times a year and a training empty gyms, six times a week, you know? So it's like I just I get so much out of pro wrestling for what I put in and I put in a lot, but still I get the men of respect in the amount of love from the fans. This everything I is overwhelming, especially coming from a sport lake, and then I feel bad for the place. I watch detour Bellcore Liotta, Machida, fight and Brazil. The. Month or so ago and within forty seconds and they're Brazil. The both former world champions and in Brazil. They started getting booed within thirty forty seconds of the flight swinging for the fences each other. And I'm just like, what is this that you've been pro wrestling to legends gotten the ring. They get circle that ring for pipe, five minutes mix. I would go and he says, two men were in the ring front of and then they got to shit..

Used to live in Vegas might still live in Vegas actually who knows? But he's traveling a lot. And in this dude was cool man, you know? But he. Left EMI, and now he's at the highest level of pro wrestling's with the WWE. So really, really happy to catch up with them and congratulate them on that. Hello, Matt riddle, welcome back ten junkie. How are you. Good, good. You're on with George and goes, and we also have you have seen middleweight Jillian Marquez with us and the host of action junkies. John Orlando man was stoked for you, Matt riddle, long, long road, and you put in your dues in the pro wrestling world, but how about you signing with the WWE with the an XT brand? Congrats man. No, I've been working pretty hard after my little run with the UFC and not having the greatest luck with that stuff kind of myself down and started pro wrestling about three years ago. And yeah, it's been awesome even pretty awesome. Been traveling the world just wrestling and busy just like people all the time for money in front of life grads. It's pretty sweet. I noticed you did have a post, you know, towards the UC president because like you said, it wasn't the best. Sold it while he's still president. They did sell, but he stayed. But what I wanted to ask you was so you you carry debt for three years that, like I guess that burn of wanting to to prove to him or towards others. It sounds like that was fueled for your drive to reach reach great heights in pro wrestling. That motivated me Email. It might look like they're from the video. I just somebody sent that to me on Instagram. It was Hilario posted it. But you know, was the same before I got to USC was anything driving, but myself in that dry got fired. I was trying to find by to just like everybody just keeps falling out from underneath me and you know anybody that knows that knows it's hard to make a living in enemy and it's even harder to make a living outside the US and with three kids, everything, it just wasn't these anymore. And I had to look further options and I've always with pro wrestling and that's, you know, that's how I ended up there. You know how, how difficult was it to make it to the level that you're at now, these three years? Can you describe him or where there any type of setbacks where you almost considered throwing in the town in that sport? Oh, yeah. There there was a setback had a try out when I first started wrestling. I had a trial with me pretty quick. Kind of like when I started playing doing today, I did the ultimate fighter trial and got into the USC pretty quick within a year. So you know, I sort of pro wrestler. Like at this trial, and I thought I'd be in the WWE within a year just like I was in the USC and the man, and it didn't turn out that way. They took a pass on me then because of my past, but the UFC you know, and that also that pass the cost me a job in Japan because they're like, hey, you know, you fail the drug test and we frown upon that and you know. So I didn't basically that held me back for years, even though I wasn't fighting even though I had done anything wrong, legally wasn't breaking house, wasn't criminal. I wasn't able to find work a lot of places, especially with the bigger companies. And now it's probably the biggest setback. Be one of the best pro wrestlers in the world, traveling the world, getting paid a lot of money, and I'm travelled, Australia, England, Germany. There's some weeks where I'm at three, four different countries in one weekend, you know, working multiple times and I still can't work with these big companies because of my past. And luckily. For me, I just kept my nose, Derek. Kept my head down kept grinding, and you know, basically became undeniable in this industry, you know? And and that's why I got the call. I got a call from Japan. They want to use me. I got a call from WWE and I basically made my decision. That's awesome..
