Brock Lesnar and Matt Riddle were said to have had a verbal altercation backstage at the Royal Rumble with Lesnar approaching Riddle after the event about the NXT star using his name on social media.

According to reports, Lesnar told Riddle to “stop saying my name and tagging me in sh*t because you and I will never work together. Ever.”

Riddle didn’t back down and the former MMA fighter was non apologetic.

EW report the wrestlers from the NXT performance centre popped big this week when told by coaches they should refrain from tagging Raw or Smackdown wrestlers on social media unless they have permission.

It’s safe to say Riddle has a lot of heat on him at the moment. His saving grace would be Paul Leveque insulating him from Vince and his cronies wrath.
