Report: Matt Riddle pulled from multiple indie dates, WWE/NXT speculation begins



Current Evolve Champion Matt Riddle has been pulled from multiple upcoming dates which has led to speculation that the former UFC welterweight may be headed down to Orlando. 

As of this writing, Riddle is still scheduled to fulfill his dates with Evolve throughout August 12th in Livonia, MI. Coincidentally, Riddle played part in saying goodbye to Keith Lee back in May at Evolve 105 in Livonia before the ‘Limitless’ one departed for NXT.

Riddle is also scheduled to wrestle PCO at Joey Janela’s ‘Lost in New York’ event on August 17th. NXT TakeOver Brooklyn IV and SummerSlam will take place in New York on the subsequent days. Riddle was scheduled for OTT’s WrestleRama 2 weekend in Ireland during those two days but has now been replaced by NJPW US Champion Juice Robinson.
