WWN Live Responds To Reports Of A Former UFC Fighter Signing With WWE Soon

- We noted earlier in the week via The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that former UFC fighter and current EVOLVE star Matt Riddle was expected to start with WWE NXT soon as he recently met with Triple H.


WWN Live, parent company of EVOLVE, addressed the reports with this alert in their newsletter today:

Matt Riddle has been the subject of many rumors in the past week, including what was reported in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter. What we do know is that when the former UFC fighter confronted William Regal at EVOLVE 54 about a WWE contract, Regal told him to focus on winning the EVOLVE Title first. Riddle has made it clear in the past that he sees EVOLVE as his stepping stone. Will he take that step by winning the EVOLVE Title on March 19th?
