Friday, September 14, 2018
It was previously reported that Dave Bautista (Batista) recently took to Twitter and revealed that WWE has not invited him to the huge SmackDown 1000th episode in October, which takes place from his hometown of Washington, DC. "The Innovator Of Violence" Tommy Dreamer also took to Twitter and invited The Animal to his House of Hardcore Shows. You can see Dreamer's invite below:
For those who missed it, below is Batista's original tweet on not being invited to SmackDown 1000:
One of the biggest and most popular free agents in the world of professional wrestling today is none other than Matt Riddle. Riddle is a professional MMA Fighter and he even competed in The UFC and won four fights before he was fired after testing positive for marijuana in February 2013. In 2014, Riddle began training for a career in professional wrestling, and made his debut in February 2015. In 2016, readers of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter recognized him as the wrestling Rookie of the Year and the Most Improved wrestler of the year.
Riddle is also the former one-time EVOLVE Champion and one-half of The Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) World Tag Team Champions with Jeff Cobb. He is also a former one-time WWN Champion and two-time PROGRESS Atlas Champion. Riddle is currently signed to WWE under The NXT Banner. Riddle has yet to make his in-ring debut, but as seen on NXT TV last Wednesday night, it appears that Matt Riddle's first NXT feud will be against Kassius Ohno. Ohno cut a heel promo saying that he is a little annoyed that he is being forgotten about when every new shiny toy shows up to NXT. He then threw a reference to Riddle, telling Regal to let him know when his latest toy shows up, "bro."
The Velveteen Dream also tweeted out a message, slightly mocking Riddle's "Bro" catchphrase, as seen below:
