Fired WWE Star Says They Had Little Direction After Main Roster Call-Up

Riddick Moss Emma WWE

A former WWE star says they were called up to the main roster without a plan.

Riddick Moss signed with WWE back in 2014 but didn’t debut on the main roster until six years later. Once on Raw, Moss flanked Mojo Rawley only to turn on him less than a month later.

This began something of a stop-start run for the star who didn’t find a consistent role again until becoming Madcap Moss and teaming up with Baron Corbin.

During a virtual signing with Captain’s Corner, Moss recalled his initial call-up in 2020, claiming he was promoted to the main roster without a plan.

“The first time I got called up, it was like very little direction. It was all, it kind of happened to where, long story short, I kind of just got called up because you didn’t have anything for me in NXT. When I went up, that first day I had no idea what I was doing. They were like, ‘You’re gonna be with Mojo,’ then I was his bodyguard, and then two weeks later, I turned on him, and then we did this really fun shoot in a toy factory, Funko toy factory, and I had basically no direction for what my character was.

So I kind of just decided to be an arrogant 24/7 Champion and kind of just started saying some of the stuff I would say in promo class as Riddick Moss. It was really fun, and I felt like I was building some momentum, then COVID hit and that kind of put a stop to everything for a while,”

Rick Boogs Retires Following WWE Exit

Despite featuring regularly through 2021 and 2022, Moss found screen time hard to come by for much of 2023 and was eventually released on September 21st. The star was released alongside the likes of Mustafa Ali, Dolph Ziggler, Emma, and Rick Boogs.

While Ali has headed out to the independent scene and Ziggler has already appeared in NJPW and TNA, Rick Boogs says he has no desire to wrestle again.
