Matt Riddle’s Status For WWE RAW After JFK Airport Incident

Matt Riddle had an incident as he was on his way home from India. That WWE Superstar Spectacle Show was quite an event for Indian fans, and Riddle had a wonderful time. The ride back home included a very bumpy road at JFK Airport.

Matt Riddle posted on Instagram that he was “sexually assaulted” by an officer at JFK Airport. This was scene that was caused when Riddle created a disturbance, and then officers were called to the situation to handle things. Riddle went on to delete that post with the accusation.

Ringside News exclusively reported that we were told that multiple attempts were made to de-escalate the situation with Matt Riddle before things got physical. This situation at JFK airport was described as “a disturbance” caused by Riddle.

It was also told to us that Matt Riddle appeared to be “heavily intoxicated” at the time. Riddle then brushed off the suggestion to lodge formal complaint. He was allegedly disruptive and caused officers to be called.



PW Insider reports that Matt Riddle is not at WWE RAW this week. It seems that Riddle’s travel schedule might have been cleared for a bit.

After the incident at JFK Airport on Saturday, can confirm that Matt Riddle is not at tonight’s Monday Night Raw taping.

It was also noted that, “WWE sources have also stated that as of this writing, he is no longer expected to work this weekend’s live events in Idaho and Washington, which Riddle had been booked on.”

We will have to see what happens. It is interesting that Matt Riddle isn’t at this week’s RAW. He is in a storyline with Drew McIntyre right now, and the team did get destroyed by the Viking Raiders last week. Only time will tell what’s next for the Original Bro.
