Matt said- “I’ll be honest, I’ve met Seth multiple times, and he’s met me and I don’t think we’ll ever be best friends [laughs].” 

“I don’t think we like one another, we’re just two different people. [Although] we both love wrestling. I know my significant other said something about Becky that they didn’t like and I also did not like or agree with. Seth didn’t like me after that, and I don’t think Becky liked me or my wife either, which is understandable. It is what it is,” Matt added.

From the quotes of Matt Riddle, it is evident that the root of the incident goes back to an Instagram post posted by his wife, Lisa.

Lisa, in her post, body-shamed some of the female Superstars of WWE, which didn’t go well with Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins. The post, which was later deleted, caused all the turmoil between Rollins and Matt.

Riddle said that he couldn’t clear the air between him and Rollins as Seth avoided speaking with Matt frequently.
