|Probably the worst kept secret on the indy scene is that Matt Riddle is about to show up in NXT, likely at the Takeover the night before Summerslam when new guys are always shown in the crowd.
Last weekend, Riddle dropped the EVOLVE title to Shane Strickland (a hell of a prospect himself and Killshot from Lucha Underground) in a hardcore match. During that match, Riddle's mother says that a chair shot clipped his finger and took part of it off and she posted a pic of the bloody digit that is missing the fleshy tip under the fingernail.
Riddle still wrestled his EVOLVE farewell match the next night, beating Austin Theory but has cancelled the rest of his final indy bookings this month. We'll see if Riddle is actually able to have his first match in NXT at the tapings this month or if they have to hold him off.
This thread was great before AA ruined it.
