Matt Riddle appears at NXT TakeOver Brooklyn 4



Dressed to the nines in a three piece suit while sporting a snapback, former UFC welterweight and independent wrestling sensation Matt Riddle was shown taking in tonight’s NXT TakeOver out of Brooklyn just moments ago. Just in case you were wondering, The King of Bros. capped off his ensemble with a pair of flip flops. Never change, Bro.

Riddle wrestled his final match on the independent circuit last night against Pierre Carl Ouellet to close out Joey Janela’s Lost in New York show. His final match for his home promotion, Evolve, came last Sunday afternoon in Livonia, Michigan against JD Drake.

Evolve released the following farewell short film for Riddle just moments after he appeared on WWE programming for the first time

Riddle is expected to begin at the WWE Performance Center shortly before becoming a full-time member of the NXT roster in the coming months.

UPDATE: PROGRESS has announced that Riddle will make his final indie appearance at their upcoming Hello Wembley show on September 30th.
