Matt Riddle saw enormous growth in his WWE career ever since he teamed up with Randy Orton. Back in April, Riddle interrupted Orton’s backstage interview as he proposed a tag team formation between them. But Orton was not interested at that moment.

However, Orton soon agreed to this proposal after Matt Riddle defeated The Viper on Raw later that month. They named the team as RK-Bro.

Recently in WWE After The Bell with Corey Graves, Riddle was seen talking about Randy Orton’s personal bus and compared it with Vince McMahon hugging him.

Riddle claimed Orton has offered to take him on the bus, but it has not happened yet. In fact, he had spent time on AJ Styles’ bus during the ThunderDome era where ‘The Phenomenal One’ would ask Riddle a couple of questions.

Later on, Riddle compared his experience in Orton’s bus with him getting a hug from Vince McMahon.

Riddle said,” I have seen Randy’s bus. I have seen him get on the bus. I have not been in Randy’s bus. This is kind of like Vince McMahon hugging me.”

Riddle then said that he is waiting for the day when he will get to be on Randy’s bus and get a hug from Vince McMahon as well, as both the events are a possibility.

“I have seen Vince[McMahon] hug lots of people. Vince [McMahon] is yet to hug me, but I have seen it happen,” Riddle added.
