For years now NXT has had a tradition of announcing their newest signee to the roster by having them sit at ringside at a Takeover event. Saturday night at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 4, this tradition was continued when Matt Riddle was shown sitting at ringside.
Former UFC fighter and indie wrestler wore a suit which is out of the usual for him, but staying true to himself with a snapback hat. Someone who was sitting behind Riddle pointed out that off camera he was wearing flip flops. Riddle was a regular to the EVOLVE promotion, which has been known for a long time as an unofficial feeder to NXT. Fans await Riddle’s next move in the big leagues.
