Matt Riddle has made a huge claim against Mr McMahon. The former WWE superstar was released from the annual contracts last year. Since then, there have been several reports claiming the next move of the talented superstar. Howver, Riddle has dropped a bombshell on the owner of the company, Mr McMahon. Although it is not sure whether Riddle has spoken truth or not, the claim seems huge.

In an interview recently, Matt said that he was booked to win the Money in the Bank ladder match in 2022. The event was eventually won by Austin Theory, which did not turn out to be good for the fans, who expected Riddle or Randy Orton to win. Fans expected a better candidate to challenge Roman Reigns in the possible capacity.

Riddle joined MLW after being released by WWE. In the new company, Riddle seems to have got a good role in terms of character building. But he has expressed that the decision was changed by Mr McMahon just hours before the start of the match. Riddle claimed that Mr Mcmahon loves Theory and hence tried to give him a push.

He further claimed that Austin was added in the ladder as per the liking of Vince. "Wanna hear something else cool? I was supposed to win Money In The Bank but Vince McMahon really likes Austin Theory and literally hours before, they changed it and Austin was added in and threw me off the ladder," said Matt in an interview recently. Riddle was upset with the fact that the plan was changed in the very last moments.

He was sad that despite being a better candidate to win the match, he was looked past by the WWE owner. Riddle revealed that he sustained two RKOs and was ready to win the match. He added that Vince expressed happiness on Austin's win. "After I took two huge ladder bumps off the RKO and everything else and it’s like... but, I love Austin Theory and I’m happy for him," added Riddle in his statement.
