As announced by WWE on social media earlier, this week’s SmackDown will see Michael Cole conduct a sit-down, in ring interview with Matt Riddle.
The interview will be Riddle’s first chance to showcase his unique personality in this sort of setting on WWE’s blue brand. These interviews do not tend to go without incident, so do not be surprised if he is interrupted by someone else from the Smackdown roster.
Riddle debuted on Smackdown on June 19th with a win against Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles in a non-title match. The following week he joined the show closing beat down of King Corbin by delivering the Floating Bro to the King.
Either of these two could be Riddle’s next opponent, however Corbin seems more likely with Styles due to defend his title against Drew Gulak this week
Corbin did eliminate Riddle from this year’s Royal Rumble, however last week rumours started to surface that Corbin was less than happy at the thought of feuding with Riddle, believing Riddle needed to work his way up the card first. Whether this is true or just an example of Corbin living his heel gimmick is unclear, perhaps well find out for sure on this week’s Smackdown.
