But nothing controversial here, yet. According to ‘The Original Bro,’ both men have buried the hatchet long ago. In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Riddle chronicled his interaction with Goldberg.

When he first came back, I was waiting, I was in position. I knew what was probably gonna happen. But I put myself there. I wanted to ease the tension slightly.” Riddle said. He did not want Goldberg to think they will have a fight whenever he showed up in WWE.

“He saw me, he’s shaking some hands, and then he comes up to me and he gave me a funny look,” Riddle said. “He turned his head to the side and then shook my hand and said, ‘Hey, Congrats kid’, and I was like, ‘Oh thanks. Go kill it out there.'”

Then Goldberg cut a promo on Bobby Lashley. When he came back, Riddle congratulated him, and the two shared a funny moment. “You know the guy has got an aura, and I have respect for him. We might disagree on a couple of things, but it is what it is,” Riddle concluded.
