Seth Rollins has revealed that his past issues with Matt Riddle were resolved while the two men had an on-screen rivalry in WWE.
In the summer and fall of 2022, one of the top rivalries on the Raw brand featured Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle. It led to some big matches between the two men with Riddle winning a big Fight Pit Match at Extreme Rules 2022, which was the last match on that show.
The rivalry between Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle felt very personal because they brought up things like Riddle going through a divorce at the time. They also had some memorable promos together taking shots at each other.
There was also some past issue with Riddle’s ex-wife making a comment that was negative toward WWE’s Becky Lynch, who is Seth’s wife, which led some people to think that there was a real issue between Seth and Matt.
During a recent interview that the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins did with Logan Paul on the IMPAULSIVE podcast, Seth’s rivalry with Riddle was brought up with The Visionary explaining that they fixed whatever issues they had.
“What about him? Well, his wife did [leave him]. I don’t think there’s such a thing as too far. You remember it, and we’re talking about months later, so that’s what I’m talking about the moments, man. That’s it.”
“We had a bit of real-life beef if you will. I had a bit of an issue with him. So you kind of got to see that play out on live television a little bit, so we worked it to our favor because now we have a moment that’s viral and something you remember that affected you, so, win win win I would say. Fine, totally good. I’m a professional.”
“We can work together, things that happened outside of here, that is what it is. He apologized, and we mended fences, and I’m all about, like, I don’t write anybody off, I’m not one of those guys that’s like ‘no second chances, you do wrong by me, I hate you forever,’ like I’m not that stubborn, it’s not that serious unless you do some real nasty things.”
“Everybody makes mistakes, and I’m big on forgiveness and second chances. I’ll forgive, not always forget and move forward. He was a big man, came forward and apologized, and we’re able to work together, and I’m happy for that.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Seth Rollins explained that Vince McMahon tweaked his catchy theme song.
