Could we see Matt Riddle compete inside an All Elite Wrestling ring this summer?

NJPW Television Champion Matt Riddle recently sat down with Jamal Niaz at Monopoly Events. When asked about the possibility of representing New Japan Pro-Wrestling and competing at Forbidden Door this Summer, Riddle didn’t rule it out.

“You know, people keep saying this ‘forbidden door.’ I mean, I was in the bubble in WWE, I guess, so I don’t know what a forbidden door is,” Matt Riddle said. “Well, I do. It’s a door you don’t go in, right? It’s forbidden. But I feel like people keep telling me to go through forbidden doors, and I feel like, ‘Guys, I’ve done this before, and I get in trouble.’

“But no, Forbidden Door, maybe, you know, I don’t know. It’s a great idea. I think anything’s possible. But at the same time, I’m not in a rush. I feel like a lot of people are in a rush. Also, you mentioned they got a stacked roster. There’s plenty of people that can fill in any gaps, and I personally don’t like to be the guy that comes in and rains on someone else’s parade or takes someone else’s spot as they’re working hard.

“If the spot’s right, like with New Japan, you got Ospreay leaving, you got Okada leaving, two big names left. Well, Nic Nemeth and Matthew Riddle came in, and kind of filled those spots. Not saying we’re going to be those guys, but they’re already moving in that direction, right? So that’s how I kind of look at it. But never say never.” [H/T: Fightful]
