In the wake of an investigation into his claims against a JFK Airport officer, Matt Riddle has been pulled from WWE Raw and live event appearances.

Matt Riddle recently turned heads with a now-deleted Instagram post claiming he had been sexually assaulted by a police officer at the JFK airport. Riddle’s post read as follows:

“Nothing like being sexually assaulted by an officer and harassed at the jfk airport, no means no and just because I’m nice doesn’t mean yes!!! A*shole!!! Don’t know they’re Twitter or instagram handles but I took pictures, normally I’m like whatever but today was really weird and uncomfortable and they made a point to make me feel small and useless. Definitely one of the most uncomfortable travel days I’ve ever had thanks NYC you’re so progressive and accepting!”

TMZ shed more light on the situation, revealing that the Port Authority police department had received a call about a disorderly person deplaning at the airport. The disorderly person in question is alleged to be Riddle.

According to TMZ, officers spoke with Riddle and other witnesses in the area, and Riddle seemed apologetic at the time. Therefore, his post alleging sexual assault came as a surprise to the police department. Port Authority police have launched an internal investigation into the incident, saying they take such claims very seriously.
