Lots of reports that Riddle and Lesnar had a shooting match backstage at the Rumble. Vince wasn’t necessarily pissed about that, but he was pissed at the reason for it, which was Riddle’s constant public comments and tweets knocking Lesnar and trying to promote a WM match with him that was never in the company’s plans. Lesnar took exception, and Vince booked him at the Rumble to be eliminated in seconds by Baron Corbin as a punishment. The way everyone else was booked it was hard to tell, but Meltzer says that booking was a receipt. 

Riddle, who got himself fired from UFC despite being on a winning streak and who Dana White despises, now has had backstage confrontations with Lesnar and Goldberg in just a few months and seems like he’s already gotten on Vince’s last nerve and he’s never even been a regular on the main roster yet.
